Three Weeks' Billiard Play Ends 
Before Large Crowd; Ladies 
Enjoy Tilt 

The first annual all-Lebanon Valley 
pool tournament came to a thrilling close 
on Tuesday afternoon, when Leslie 
Saunders, one of Harrisburg's leading 
knights of the green table, decisively 
showecl his superiority over George 
Konsko, the Palmerton flash, by a 100 
to 63 score. Saunders jumped off to an 
early lead in this final round of the 
tournament, and held it throughout, 
leading at one time 27 to 5. He played 
his best pool of the tournament in this 
contest, seeming to be at ease in the 
most difficult shots on the table. Konsko 
showed flashes of championship form at 
times, but was not able to keep up with 
the Greenleaf-like pace as set by Saund- 
ers. The crowd of 150 or more stu- 
dents who packed the little Y.M.C.A. 
room of the men's dormitory was thrilled 
from time to time as one difficult shot 
after another was registered by one or 
the other of the finalists. 

This final round of tournament play 
v.-a; not in the least i.!ie .nust interesting 
and by far not the most closely fought 
game. In fact, some of the early first 
round games were just as interesting and 
almost as exciting as the final round. 
These games, however, did not show the 
flashy brand of pool that the Saunders- 
Konsko match brought forth. 

Thirty-four men entered the first 
round of tournament play some three 
weeks ago. The first round of play 
consisted of only 50 points, the second 
round of 50, the third and fourth rounds 
75, while the final round of play was 
100 points. The semi-final round ended 
last week. In this round Konsko had 
some trouble in disposing of Sincavage, 
also of Palmerton, 75 to 53. Saunders 
easily swept aside Peiffer 75 to 22. 

Takes First Frame 

Saunders opened the final round of 
play by taking the first rack in cham- 
pionship style, running off the final 10 
to clean up 14-0. In the second rack 
Konsko came to life and broke even 
with Saunders. Score 21-7 at end of 
second rack. They also divided the 
third rack, Konsko getting the applause 
°f the crowd on a beautiful bank shot, 
the rack ending with the score 28-14. 
The fourth rack was run off in twos and 
rees, both players missing many shots.

A series of Lenten services was in- 
augurated by the "YV of the campus 
a devotional sunrise service on 

£ ri day, March 17, at 6:30 o'clock. 
The meeting was conducted by Allen

In observance of St. Patrick's Day, 
there was quite a prevalence of Irish 
songs on the chapel program, led by 
Professor Rutledge. 

The program started with "Music 
in the Air." This was followed by 
"My Wild Irish Rose," "Believe Me 
If All Those Endearing Young 
Charms," "When Irish Eyes Are Smil- 
ing," and 'The Three Fishermen." In 
the next number, "Go Down Moses," 
the freshmen took the solo part and 
the rest of the chapel group sang the 
chorus lines. "The Volga Boatman," 
the last number, was sung in canon 
form, the girls and the piano leading. 
Miss Ruth Bailey accompanied all 
the numbers with the stage piano. 

Cabinets Unite In 
"Y" Vesper Service 


Theme is "Liberalism"; Seventy 
Hear Enlightening Discussion 
By History Professor 

The first of the joint Sunday evening 
Vesper services, sponsored by the new 
"Y. W." and "Y. M." cabinets, was held 
Sunday evening at 5:45 in Engle Con- 
servatory. Dr. Stevenson's address on 
Liberalism was the high-light of the even- 
ing's program, which was enjoyed by an 
audience of seventy or more students 
and faculty members. 

Dr. Stevenson was introduced by 
Miriam Book, who, as program chair- 
man of the "Y. W.", presided over the 
service. The speaker plunged immediate- 
ly into his subject, Liberalism, and, for 
the next fifteen minutes or more, he de- 
lighted his audience with an enlighten- 
ing discussion on the principles of Lib- 
eralism. First, he spoke of the need of 
a philosophy of life, — toward God, our 
neighbors, and public questions. He 
then pointed out the possibilities of a 
conservative, a liberal, or a radical out- 
look in our philosophy. 

He continued with a discussion of the 
history of Liberalism, saying that dem- 
ocracy, nationalism, and laissez-faire 
were all involved in it. In favor of dem- 
ocracy, he said that it has not been given 
a fair trial, and that the new forms of 
government are negatives, or denials of 
democracy. In nationalism he saw the 
cause of the World War, and the pres- 
ent depression's continuance. He em- 
phasized the fact that nationalism has 
neglected the smaller nations, and has 
shown the larger nations to be extremely 
selfish. As for laissez-faire, it is now in 
the scrap heap. He mentioned that the 
liberals did not cherish it in its extreme 
interpretation, but rather want regula- 

Dr. Stevenson then gave the meaning 
of Liberals as a devotion to ideals, truth, 
and a willingness to view all institutions 
and organs of society in an open- 
minded way. It involves dispassionate 
and unbiased judgment, a devotion to 
justice, and the idea of mercy or love.

Chorus Gives First 
Concert In Ephrata 


Glee Club, Newly Gowned In Wine 
And White, Make Striking 
Picture In Cloister Town 

The college glee club and soloists, 
a group selected from the mixed chorus, 
has given the first of a series of spring 
concerts. The club appeared on Tues- 
day evening at Ephrata. The group 
made a striking picture, all in the new 
deep wine robes with white colors. And 
they certainly lived up to the first im- 
pression that they made in the program 
which they rendered. The group is led 
by Professor Edward P. Rutledge. 

First was a group of numbers by the 
club. The majestic number, "The Heav- 
ens Resound" (Beethoven), then "By 
Babylon's Wave" (Gounod), based on 
Psalm 137, and finally the rollicking 
hunting chorus by Kountz, "A-hunting 
We Will Go," comprised this group. 

Miss Ruth W. Bailey, a sophomore, of 
Reading, then played the tone poem, 
"Cantique d'amour" (Liszt) and the 
modern composition "Marche" by 
ProkoficfT. T l.Si •*.iilcy played her soiOi 
with a brilliance and verve. Her num- 
bers displayed to advantage her ability 
to produce beautiful tones. 

Mr. Dale Roth, a sophomore tenor, 
sang two numbers that are admirably 
suited to the quality of his voice 
"Combre Woods "(Lully) and "Passing 
By" (Purell) were both sung beautifully.

M. I. T. Described By 
Dr. James L. Try on 

During the chapel period on Monday 
morning the student body was addressed 
by Professor James L. Tryon of the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
who spoke on the entrance requirements 
and courses of that institution. 

Professor Tryon, the Ambassador of 
Technology, has specialized for years in 
educational guidance and has had broad 
training in journalism and international 
law. While connected with the world 
peace movement he was sent abroad on 
international peace conferences and has 
become well acquainted with European 
as well as American conditions. 

The policy of the Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technology is to establish co- 
operation with sister institutions b> per- 
sonal contact. Professor Tryon's visit is 
a continuance of this policy and in prev- 
ious years he has covered the entire 
United States and parts of Canada as a 
college visitor. His object is to exchange 
ideas with the administration and to in- 
terview those students who have indi- 
cated a desire to take up work in the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 
By these interviews Professor Tryon is 
able to ascertain whether such students 
are pursuing the line of work which will 
lead to their objectives as well as to see 
if they are fitted for work in their chosen 

During his short stay on the Lebanon 
Valley campus, Professor Tryon was en- 
tertained by President Lynch, who ar- 
ranged numerous interviews with var- 
ious members of the student body. 




Those students who visit the read- 
ing room of the libarary habitually, 
have noticed a very decorative plaque 
on the wall. It has been awarded 
to Lebanon Valley for one year be- 
cause of the unparalleled attendance 
at the fall conference of the Y. M. 
C. A. at Harrisburg. As this can be 
kept only temporarily, our students 
are enthused over the idea of winning 
it for two more successive years, after 
which it will be a permanent posses- 
sion. And it is well worth the effort, 
for it is a beautiful trophy in the 
shape of a shield, with a mahogany 
outer border and a shining silver 
plate upon which the inscription has 
been made. 

Chemists Discuss 
Gems, Oils and Silk 


Leisey, Reed, Kowalewski, And 
Del linger Discourse; Talk On 
Cellulose and Bakelite 

The Chemistry club, under the super- 
vision of Dr. Andrew Bender and the 
presidency of Norman Hemperly, held 
a regular meeting Wednesday evening, 
March 15, in the chemistry lecture room. 
The program for the night included in- 
teresting reports by four students. 

Marion Leisey gave two short talks. 
Her first, on gems, elaborated a point 
often stressed by Dr. Bender — that a 
prized jewel is really nothing more than 
a common element or compound in a 
rare form. Miss Leisey stressed the fact 
that a diamond is in no particular way 
beautiful, and that it is merely an allo- 
tropic form of carbon. Thus, a man 
disporting a diamond stud is merely 
walking around with a first cousin to coal 
stuck on his clothing. Another example 
she used was to call the ruby an oxide 
of aluminum colored by other metallic 
ions (e. g., manganese for purple). Miss 
Leisey's second talk was on "Rayon". 
The producer of this artificial silk ob- 
tains pure cellulose by dissolving wood 
in sodium hydroxide . The cellulose 
is then dissolved in carbon disulphide 
and the product introduced through 
jets into an organic acid. The material 
solidifies in strings. The rayon then 
goes through the manufacturing pro- 
cesses common to wool. 

The second address was on "Bakelite", 
and was delivered by Ted Kowalewski. 
Bakelite was discovered by a Belgian 
chemist named Baekeland. The material 
is chemically phenol-formaldehyde resin 
and is made entirely by synthetic pro- 
cesses. The material is heated in a retort 
and compressed by steam-presses. It has 
risen quickly in the commercial field and, 
due to its hardness and heat-resisting 
properties, is one of the most widely 
used substances today. Mr. Kowalewski 
enumerated many uses for this valuable 
compound, prominent among which are 
the manufacture of electrical fixtures, in- 
cluding all manner of gadgets for the 
radio, ash-trays, cutlery handles, cog- 
wheels and phonograph records.

University of Pennsylvania Team 
Will Discuss Ministerial Respon- 
sibilities Tomorrow Night 

Tomorrow night, Friday, in Philo 
hall, Lebanon Valley for the first time 
meets the University of Pennsylvania in 
a forensic relationship. Considering the 
comparative sizes of the schools, it is a 
great honor for our college to have the 
university team travel here in order to 
meet our debating representatives. 

Penn, in requesting a debate with us, 
however, asked us to argue on the ques- 
tion, Resolved: That tehre should be an 
amendment made to the constitution of 
the United States to provide for minis- 
terial responsibility. For some time the 
matter remained undecided as to the 
acceptance of' this challenge due to the 
choice of another topic for debate this 
season but at last, upon repeated letters 
from Penn, arrangements were complet- 
ed for the debate. Lebanon Valley 
agreed to uphold the negative side. 

Inasmuch as it was necessary to choose 
another team because of the new ques- 
tion the coaches called for volunn^f.? 
Because of the large number of students 
who offered their services for this special 
debate, Prof. Stokes and Dr. Stevenson 
had a hard time picking the team. They 
finally chose Calvin Reber, a Freshman, 
and Gerald Heilman, a Senior, to repre- 
sent our school. They are to be first and 
second speakers respectively. Both boys 
have had previous experience as debat- 
ers and as both are outstanding students 
in economics and history they are well 
qualified to argue on the question. 

To Follow Orthodox Style 

This debate, although having only 
two speakers to a side, will not be con- 
ducted on the Oregon plan but will fol- 
low the regular order of debate. Con- 
structive speeches are to be fifteen min- 
utes long and the rebuttals are limited 
to seven minutes each. 

Stevenson Acts As Coach 

Under the leadership of Dr. Steven- 
son these men have been doing special 
reading in the library and have secured 
as thorough a grounding in the subject 
as time permitted. The university is 
clearly at an advantage here since they 
have been debating this question all sea- 
son and are familiar with the various 
lines of argument that may be brought 
up. Nevertheless, this debate is a step 
forward for our team and should prove 
worthy of attendance and attention. 



May Day, 1933, is fast approach- 
ing we are led to believe. Prof. 
Shaar, of Harrisburg, is again to 
direct the affair, with Miss Keriyon 
and the co-chairmen, Kathryn Mow- 
rey and Allen Ranck. Sleeping Beau- 
ty has been chosen as the theme. To 
aid in planning, the following com- 
mittee chairmen have been selected: 
Costumes, Lena Cockshott; Decora- 
tion, Margaret Longenecker; Finance, 
George Sherk; Program, Warren 
Mentzer; Properties, Philip Under- 
wood; Publicity, Fred Lehman, and 
Refreshments Verna Grissinger.

It is usually with great trepidation 
that students approach the task of editing 
a college weekly newspaper, a task which 
involves both the molding and the ex- 
pression of student opinion. However, 
a responsibility, which at first glance ap- 
pears to be overwhelming, assumes more 
reasonab u weight when viewed after a 
few moments' consideration. 

We read in the editorial columns of 
the daily press such vigorous denuncia- 
tions of current national and local evils, 
such stalwart support of pet measures, 
that we are inclined to look for discus- 
sion of similar import in our weekly 
La Vie. Upon reflection, we find sev- 
eral reasons why a like dynamic editori- 
al outlook is most difficult to attain. 

First, tradition confines us to discus- 
sion of campus problems and other sub- 
jects relative to our college. We find 
few matters at Lebanon Valley worthy 
of whole-hearted "crusading". Campus 
questions pale beside the war debts, the 
prohibition arguments, the budget. But 
there are some conditions at Lebanon 
Valley which deserve the support or at- 
tack of any virile newspaper, and "cru- 
sading" there shall be when the psycho- 
logical moments present themselves. 

Second, it is useless to claim that full 
freedom of speech is the happy lot of 
any college newspaper, let alone La Vie 
Collegienne. Considerations of policy, 
both advisable and inadvisable, lead au- 
thorities to place checks and balances 
upon all college papers. We have good 
■ isons to believe that restrictions at 
Lebanon Valley will be minimum, and 
that editorial discussion of value will re- 
ceive sympathetic attention from the ad- 

So much for editorial policy. There 
is a great deal more to La Vie than 
the editorial page, and in this remain- 
ing section of the paper it shall be the 
nd hope of this staff to carry on the 
progress already made by our illustrious 
predecessors. There is no crying need 
for a radical change in format or any 
< ;her startling departure. But from time 
to time we will make changes which we 
believe will improve La Vie. In our 
program, we can ask no encouragement 
better than the serious attention and 
constructive criticisms La Vie has re- 
ived in the past. 


Philo met in a short business session 
last Wednesday noon in Philo hall. At 
that time reports of the various anni- 
versary committees were received and dis- 
cussed. The society decided upon "She 
Stoops To Conquer," as their choice for 
the anniversary play. The dance com- 
mittee reported favorable progress on 
their plans, as did also several of the 
other committees. Other less important 
business was transacted, after which the 
meeting was adjourned.

Alumni Notes 

The Baltimore Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Club held their spring meeting on 
Friday, March 10. The annual dinner 
was served at the banquet rooms of the 
Hopkins Apartments, and was a deli 
cious feast enjoyed by all who particip- 
ated. After the banquet, which con- 
vened from seven to nine, the party was 
transferred to the delightful home of 
Professor and Mrs. Joseph Jackowich 
3282 Guilford Avenue, where the bus 
iness meeting was conducted, and the 
members were addressed by President 
Lynch and Professor Derickson, who 
conveyed the greetings of the College 
and summarized the year's progress of 
their Alma Mater. 

Mr. and Mrs. Jackowich, whom many 
Alumni will remember better as "Joe" 
and "Hilda" (Calb), have blossomed 
into the social, civic and religious lead- 
ership in the big city that might have 
been predicted from their always loyal 
devotion to college affairs. They proved 
royal leaders in the joyous fellowship 
in which those present participated, and 
shared with Mr. and Mrs. Hammond, 
and Miss Esta Wareheim and Edna 
Long, president and secretary to the 
club, in entertaining the representatives 
of the College. 

Those present were: Mrs. Rebecca 
Fisher Lehman, ex. '74; Prof. S. H. Der- 
ickson, '02; Mrs. Jennie Vallerchamp 
Derickson, '04; Mrs. Grace Lawrey Til- 
ford, '09, and Mr. Tilford; Dr. Floyd 
Shaffer, '10, and Mrs. Shaffer; Rev. Paul 
Koontz, '11, and Mrs. Elizabeth Lou 
Koontz, '12; Mrs. Edith Lehman Bart- 
let, '13; Rev. Guy Stambach, '16, and 
Mrs. Stambach; Miss Esta Wareheim, 
'16; Mrs. Hilda Calb Jackowick, '17; 
President Clyde A. Lynch, '18, and Mrs. 
Lynch; Mr. Norman Bouder, '19; and 
Mrs. Helena Maulfair Bouder, '20; Prof. 
Joseph Jackowick, '20; Mr. Harold Lutz, 
ex. '20, and Mrs. Lutz; Dr. E. Gaston 
Vandenbosch, '22; Rev. John W. Luck- 
ens, '26, and Mrs. Luckens; Mr. and 
Mrs. Bayard Hammond, '29; Miss Lula 
Bedsworth, ex. '29; Miss Edna Long, '29; 
George Derickson, '34, and George Hilt- 
ner, '35. 


Lebanon Valley College is not the 
only campus suffering under a new cut 
rule. At Franklin and Marshall College 
the Seniors who have had an average of 
B or better for the preceding two semes- 
ters shall be allowed unlimited absence 
in lectures and recitations. However, 
they must fulfill laboratory requirements, 
be present at all announced written tests, 
and hand in all required reports. Dean 
Bomberger asserts that the faculty has 
taken this action only for this semester 
beginning March 6. Its continuance de- 
pends upon the success of the plan. He 
goes on to explain that in a graduate 
school each one works out his own prob- 
lems and does his own research work. 
There is no reason why colleges cannot 
prepare one for this freedom of initia- 
tive in study. So far only the seniors 
have been given this valuable oportunity, 
but there is the possibility that the sys- 
tem will be extended to the other classes. 

In the recent earthquake of Southern 
California, 116 people were killed — mur- 
dered by the cupidity of California bus- 
iness men. Ever since the disastrous 
San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, seis- 
mologists and geogolists have been try- 
ing unsuccessfully to get the state to 
adopt and enforce a building code, 
which would make earthquake-proof con- 
struction compulsory. Unsuccessful, with 
hundreds homeless and many killed! 
What a sacrifice unnecessarily made! 
The record of California is all the more 
shameful when compared with that of 
Japan who is continually taking all poss- 
ible steps to minimize the danger which 
still and always will exist. It is indeed 
pathetic to see these people rendered 
homeless. And yet not disheartened — 
building again their demolished homes 
and starting life anew. 

It might interest the campus to know 
that in New York today the present al- 
cohol percentage of beer is 5.5 to 6.3. 
Under the bill now before the public's 
eye — this percetnage will be 3.2 Legal- 
ized wine will be the same percent. To 
all appearances we will have beer by 
April 6, with no federal government re- 
strictions, save those mentioned in the 
bill. Prosperity will return, the depres- 
sion will end, everything will be rosy — or 
so some lame-brained agitators have in- 
formed us. We all anxiously await this 
miraculous transformation and are eag- 
erly expecting its arrival. 


Dr. Lynch has been kept extremely 
busy filling engagement's since his return 
from Baltimore last week. On March 
12, he preached at the Shippensburg 
United Brethren church. On the 19th 
Dr. Lynch traveled to Huntingdon to 
preach at the U. B. church in that place. 
His sermon was on the "Principles of 
Religious Education." During his stay 
in Huntingdon, Dr. Lynch visited Dr. 
Ellis, at Juniata College. Drs. Lynch 
and Jones traveled to Harrisburg on 
March 20 to attend the meeting of the 
U. B. Ministers' association. On the 
21st, President Lynch and Professor 
Gingrich were the guests of the Ephrata 

On the afternoon of March 26th, 
Dr. Lynch will deliver the rally day ad- 
dress at Mechanicsburg. In the evening 
he will address the younger set at Shep- 
herdstown. He will deliver the sermon 
at the Union Lenten Service at Man- 
heim on March 29. The next' day will 
find him addressing the P. T. A. in 
Hummelstown High School. 

The name on the lips of the Amer- 
ican reader today is "Ann Vickers," Sin- 
clair Lewis' startling and realistic novel. 
The heart of a modern woman. Ann 
Vickers portrays the present day Amer- 
ican woman, the business woman, the 
social worker, the successful feminist who 
in the last thirty years has lived a cen- 
tury in the history of women. A career, 
success, fame, love, a home, a child — 
Ann wanted them all. She achieved 
success and frustration, bleak apartment 
hotels, domestic boredom, public hom- 
age, furtive rapture, all futile anodynes 
until, at last, she dared to be herself. 
The descriptions and character sketches 
are vividly pictured. Not only are the 
interesting and exciting high lights of 
her career clearly depicted, but also the 
drab and grey details which make up the 
existence of the ordinary individual. Will 
this novel gain a permanent place in 
literature, or will it fade into the dim 
background with many of its contem- 
poraries? Will it show to future gen- 
erations a clear picture of our modern 
day and age? 

At Franklin and Marshall College all 
staff members of the "Student Weekly" 
are chosen by tryouts. All the students 
are eligible and can submit manuscripts 
for consideration and approval. What 
effect would such a method have upon 
our college newspaper? For better or 
for worse? It might be worth a trial. 

Philos Honor Saint 

Patrick On Friday 

Lectures, Music, Recitations And 
Irish Jokes Feature the 
Regular Meting 

The Philokosmian Literary Society met 
Friday evening, March 17, in Philo hall, 
to celebrate St. Patrick's day with a spe- 
cial literary program. An average at- 
tendance of Philo members was present 
to hear this interesting program, in 
which the Irish element was especially 

After the usual devotional period, con- 
ducted by Miller Schmuck, the program 
proper was presented. The first number 
on the program was a talk on the life of 
St. Patrick, by Stuart Werner. Mr. 
Werner presented interesting facts con- 
cerning the youth, travels, adventures, 
and, finally, the death of St. Patrick. 
His major point was that St. Patrick was 
not really an Irishman, but a missionary 
to Ireland, who had become an heroic 
and beloved figure among the Irish 

The rendition of the Irish number, 
"Believe Me, If All Those Endearing 
Young Charms," was the next feature. 
Singing a capella, the quartet, composed 
of Charles Daugherty, Harry Krone, 
Kenneth Shaeffer, and Samuel Harnish, 
gave a very fine interpretation of the 

Irish humor was the subject of the 
talk by Ray Johnson. He had a very 
good variety of Irish jokes, and pre- 
sented the subject in a very humorous 
way, bringing peals of laughter from the 
entire audience. 

Edmund Umberger followed with a 
recitation of the poem, "Casey at the 
Bat". It was very well delivered, and 
gained much applause from his listen- 
ers. The program was ended with the 
playing of "The Rosery", by Clyde 

The critic's report, given by Harry 
Zech, was followed by a period of gen- 
eral remarks and discussions. After fif- 
teen minutes of jokes and pointed re- 
marks, the meeting was adjourned to 
meet in a short business session.

Cast Selected By Kalo 
For "The Last Mile" 

Our college professors and class offi- 
cers can now relax — Zangara is dead — 
electrocuted Monday morning. The 
feeling of suspicion, dread, and uneasi- 
ness can now be dispelled. His last 
words were a puzzled inquiry as to why 
no camera men were present to take pic- 
tures of his death. In our world of un- 
just justice this is one time when crime 
on being discovered was immediately 
sought out and punished. Is capital 
punishment the cure for crime? Will 
this startling example help or hinder our 
present crime wave? 

Plans for the production of "The Last 
Mile," Kalo anniversary play, are pro- 
gressing rapidly under the direction of 
Darwin Williard. The following cast

"The Last Mile," produced in New 
York in 1930, has but recently been 
made available for non-professional act- 
ing. It is believed that the apearance of 
the play here on April 7 will mark its 
debut on any college campus. 


Did y° u know?: that they are calling 
Bowers "Caboose" because he's alway s 
last? that the second semester is half 
over? that there are some pessimists 
who look forward to more snow? that 
Betty Schaak does not giggle once a 
minute (official tests give the result as 
59 times an hour)? that two peopl e 
didn't know until today that there is a 
new engagement ring on the campus? 
that Dr. Omwake (president of Ursinus) 
due to his name, was once invited to a 
dinner tendered Japanese students at 
Yale? that I should apologize to Dr. 
Shenk for adopting the line preceeding 
this? that the new college catalogue will 
be minus those barren-looking pictures 
of previous years? 

What a fine thing is would be if mod- 
ern society decided to wait twenty years 
before christening its sons and daugh- 
ters. Certainly, after that length of 
time to decide a suitable monicker should 
improve the quality of the appelations 
applied. Think of all the poor, suffer- 
ing he-men in the country today who 
grew up with unforgivable names like 
Percival and Clarence. We've attempt- 
ed here suitably to name ten men and 
ten women to a better advantage. They 
are: Schmucky Schmuck, Wavewand 
Todd, Waffledaffle Fridy, Lettuceleaf 
Zech, Oneton Dellinger, Moran Sheaf- 
fer and Mack Daugherty (Moran and 
Mack), Valley View Klein, Muscle- 
bound Neibel, Hawkaw Kandrat; Logar- 
ithm Koch, Queen-of-the-Valley Forry, 
Coy Weirick, Poorpun Ossi, Dutch Mil- 
ler, Personality Sharp, Stately McAdam, 
Cutey Wagner, and Helen Sandt. 

We nominate for oblivion: People 
who snoop in other peoples' desk draw- 
ers. April showers in March. 3:30 
classes, especially on Monday. 

We nominate for the hall of fame: 
that person who walks all the way from 
Palmyra to Annville more than once a 
week. Robert Cassell and his umbrella. 
Winnie Miller's new appearance in 
glasses, as well as the deput of Jordan 
and Volkin in splendid pairs of the 
same articles. 

There are three plays on their way 
to production on the campus at present: 
Clionian's "Taming of the Shrew," to 
be given April 1 ; Kalo's "Last Mile," 
to be given April 7; and Philo's "She 
Stoops to Conquer," to be shown on 
May 5. This is quite a dramatic pro- 
gram. For Philo and Kalo to be re- 
hearsing at the same time is a common 
occurrence, but Clio is a newcomer at 
this time of the year. The former two 
have always worked smoothly together 
and we can only hope that three will do 
the same by easy cooperation. But the 
fact still remains that the plays should 
be distributed more evenly, as in former 
years, both in the interest's of what might 
become boring dramatics and in the in- 
terests of hard-working coaches and 
casts who have a right to a certain 
amount of temperament. 

It hasn't been the usual custom for 
this column to criticize ony of the de- 
fects in the campus buildings, but one 
thing is most heart-rending. We refer 
to the condition of the Y room during 
and after each bit of rain. Water, 
seeping through from the drain, per- 
meates a large section of wall, drips down 
onto the floors, and floods the two rooms 
to an appreciable extent. The criticism 
is not here made in behalf of the com- 
forts of the student body, but rather 
with the fear that this seepage may 
bring down a wall of plaster with no 
great trouble. 

Stewart Byers, reminiscing, imagined 
a meeting between two student's, Stone 
and Wood, some twenty years hence- 
Said Byers, the conversation would be 
as follows: 

Stone: Hello, George. How are you, 

and Mrs. Wood, and all the little splint- 

Wood: Just fine, Lee. And how are 

you, and Mrs. Stone, and all the little

It seems as though Ole Man Pluvious 
iust won't give us a "break". The first 
f e w scheduled baseball practices have 
keen complete washouts, but it takes 
m0 re. than rain, rain, and more rain to 
keep down a group of ambitious, hope- 
ful aspirants, for the scene of action is 
temporarily laid in the College "ice box" 
when such conditions prevail. However, 
rumor has it that there weren't as many 
tears shed over the postponed practice 
on Saturday as might have been expect- 
ed. Why? The college cagewomen were 
entertaining Elizabethtown in the high 
school gym. Nuff Sed! 



We hear that the tennis courts are 
soon to be reconditioned, and that, 
weather permitting, students may begin 
to use them by the first of April. Now 
that spring has made its annual debut, 
the tennis spirit is slowly returning and 
the racket wielders are expectantly wait- 
ing to hear the familiar 'serve 'em up". 
While on the subject of tennis it may be 
interesting to do a little pre-season pros- 
pecting on the personnel of this year's 
team. Captain Donmoyer and Lehman 
remain as two regular from last year, 
while Lantz and Konsko loom as fine 
prospects for the squad. Donmoyer's 
record in the past is evidence enough of 
his value to the team, and it is imposs- 
ible for anyone who has witnessed his 
playing to doubt his superb ability. 
"Slim" Walborn and Theodore Nye, a 
freshman, have also expressed their in- 
tentions of becoming aspirants for the 
court team. 

What has happened to the usual in- 
terest taken in the inter-class basketball 
games? These contests have been near- 
ly completed, but so far the cheering and 
attendance has been noticeably lacking. 
Is the old class spirit dying out? The 
standing of the teams thus far shows 
that the Juniors and Seniors are tied for 
first place and that a win in the next 
encounTer for the Frosh will put them 
in the same position. In case of a poss- 
ible triple tie or of a playoff between 
the upper-class teams, let's revive the 
class loyalty and display a little fight 
for our fellow-classmen.

Girls Win Over E-Town 
Sextet By 26-18 Score 

The girl's basketball team entertained 
the Elizabethtown sextet in the high 
school gymnasium on Saturday after- 
noon and successfully emerged from the 
f ray on the bright side of a 26-18 score. 
The local aggregation, working under a 
re-vamped" line-up, displayed fine of- 
fensive and defensive ability, and a 
Marked superiority over its rival was 
clearly evident. The starting team for 
the weaker sex from Lebanon Valley re- 
named intact throughout the entire en- 
counter. The girls, prior to this game, 

had b 

een unsuccessful in every start, but 
never say die" spirit which they 
have always exhibited finally took root 
m thls contest and blossomed into a de- 
Clsive victory. At half time the Valley 
team was trailing 13-10, but soon after 
th e beginning of the second half the lo- 
, als turned a lead that was never ser- 
l0 "sly threatened. Line -up: 

Lebanon Val.

Score 36-19. Saunders started off the 
next rack with a run of five. The re- 
mainder of the rack was listless, being 
in ones and twos. Score at end of fourth 
rack 44-24. 

Saunders increased his lead in the 
next rack, making the high run of 7. 
Score at end of this rack 54-28. Konsko 
made four in the next rack, Saunders 
idding more to his »core. Score 63-32 
Konsko made a final effort in the last 
five racks, in which he added 28 more 
to his score, but the superior shooting 
of Saunders in the early part of the 
game kept him decisively in the lead, 
the game ending 100-63 in favor of

The Junior class basketball team 
proved that its rejuvenation was not a 
temporary one when it decisivelty 
trounced the Senior team in the college 
gym by a score of 36-28 and won its sec- 
ond consecutive game. The Seniors, 
who were undefeated last year and had 
started this season with two consecutive 
victories, never seriously threatened their 
opponents who assumed an early lead 
and soon erased any doubt as to the final 
outcome. Lehman and Volkin were high 
scorers for the Junior team, while Clem-

Seniors. Score:

Engle Hall Recital 
Very Well Attended 


Gorrecht, Goodman, Haz, Light, 
Dietrich, Sharp, Bailey,7And 
Quartet On Program 

In spite of the heavy rain last 
Wednesday evening, the students' recital 
in Engle hall was well attended. The 
program proved to be an unusually fine 

Miss Doris Gorrecht, a sophomore, 
began the program with the finely played 
"Impromptu in E Flat" by Schubert. 

Mr. Stuart Goodman, well known ten- 
or, of Annville, then sang "Who Is Syl- 
via" by Schubert, "Homing" by Del 
Riego, and "Thora" by Stevens Adams. 

"In Elizabethan Days," by A. W. 
Kramer, was the violin number, very 
well played by Mr. Russel Hatz. 

Miss Sarah Light next played the well 
liked "Adoration" by Borowski, as an 
organ solo. 

"Moment Musical" by Schubert and 
"Valse in E Minor" by Chopin were 
well interpreted on the piano by Miss 
Oleta Dietrich. 

Miss Margaret Sharp, in her inimit- 
able way, sang "Clouds" by E. Charles; 
"Iris" by H. Ware and "I Bring You 
Heartease" by Branscombe. 

Miss Ruth Bailey, in her pleasing 
manner, played Schumann's "Arab- 
esque" and Brahm's "Rhapsody in B 

Two selections arranged by W. A. 
Ambrosio — "Andante from the Fifth 
Symphony" by Tschaikowsky and "Am- 
aryllis" by H. Ohys — were played by the 
violin quartette comprised of Miss Mar- 
tha Elser, Miss Oleta Dietrich, Mr. Rus- 
sel Hatz, and Professor Harold Walsh. 

On Tuesday evening, March 28, there 
will be a students' recital in Engle Hall. 

On March 29, Wednesday evening, 
another student recital will be held. 

The Glee Club will give a concert in 
the First U. B. Church of Palmyra, 
Thursday evening, March 30. 

Philo Chooses Cast 

For Goldsmith Play 

The cast for "She Stoops To Con- 
quer," Philo's anniversary play, has been 
definitely chosen, and is ready for publi- 
cation. This five-act comedy, by Oliver 
Goldsmith, calls for twelve male and 
four female characters. For these parts, 
Dr. Wallace, coach of the play, has 
named the following: 

Mr. Handcastle Chester Goodman 

Tony Lumpkin Clyde Mentzer 

Hastings Algire McTaul 

Marlow Ray Johnson 

Sir Charles Marlow DeWitt Essick 

Diggory v Samuel Ulrich 

Roger Clyde Magee 

First Servant.— - George Hiltner 

Second Servant Henry Grimm 

Third Servant Charles Daugherty 

Landlord Paul Emenheiser 

Mrs Handcastle Sarah McAdam 

Miss Handcastle Gloria Lavanture 

Miss Neville Catherine Wagner 

Pimple Ruth Garner 

This play is a thoroughly delightful 
comedy, full of good-natured fun and 
frolic. Though departing from the seri- 
ous or heavy type of play, Philo is not 
lowering its standards by presenting this 
play of Oliver Goldsmith, since many 
cities appraise it as one of the finest dra- 
mas in the English language. Though 
the play will not be presented until May 
5, Dr. Wallace has set the cast to work 
in order that most of the memorization 
may be completed before the Easter va- 
cation interferes with regular practices. 
From first indications, Philo has a play 
in store for even the most critical and 
cynical on the campus, and one which 
will be well worth attending. 

L.V. Delegates Attend 
Conference At Temple 

Mrs. Green and Misses Book, Jack- 
son and Mowrey Represent 
Y.W.C.A. Cabinet 

j|A conference of the Y.W.C.A. cabi- 
nets of Eastern Pennsylvania met in 
Mitten hall of Temple University, Sat- 
urday, March 18. The purpose of the 
gathering was the exchange of ideas in 
order that greater work can be done by 
the individual cabinets. Those colleges 
which took advantageg of this opportun- 
ity were. Beaver, Ursinus, University of 
Pennsylvania, Drexel, Moravian, West 
Chester, Lebanon Valley, and Temple. 

The general conference meeting was 
opened at 1:45 with a welcome by Miss 
Virginia Dengler, president of the Tem- 
ple University Y. W. C. A. Then Miss 
Winnifred Wygal spoke on the purpose 
of the association. She suggested that 
its aim is to start folks growing, for once 
started they never stop. 

After a general discussion, the confer- 
ence met in groups to discuss the particu- 
lar problems of the cabinet chairmen, 

including the advisers, officers, program, 
social service, publicity, world fellowship, 
and membership chairmen. These groups 
were directed by individual members of 
the several cabinets. 

The evening program was a "Y" 
table discussion, concerning the choice 
of new members. The day was closed 
by devotions led by Miss Wygal. 


The plans for the second event the 
Clionian Literary Society is anticipating 
to celebrate her anniversary are almost 
completed. The anniversary president, 
Miss Kathryn Lutz, has appointed the 
following committees: Program-Ruth 
Coble, Mary Groff, Jane Shellenberger; 
Seating-Mae Fauth, Irma Keifer, Fran- 
cis Keiser; Properties-- Jane Muth, Bet- 
ty Schaak, Helen Ernest; Refreshment- 
Lena Cockshott, Elizabeth Carl, Virginia 
Summers; Music-Martha Kreider, Rae 
Anna Reber; Decoration-Charlotte Wei- 
rick, Esther Daugherty, Jane Showers. 

Miss Marion May, who is directing 
the play, "The Taming of the Shrew," 
believes that it is progressing very well. 

Thrifty College Men 



T'S not only thrifty — it's good common sense to 
telephone home after 8:30 P. M. 

The folks are at home — your time is free — it's just 
the time for a family "get-together." 

Best of all, at 8:30 P. M. low Night Rates go into 
effect on Station to Station calls. Call home tonight 
and take advantage of the saving. A Station to Station 
call is for a telephone — not for a specific person. 
You just give the operator your home telephone num- 
ber and hold the line. 

It will be a thrill you'll want to repeat. So make a 
"date" to call again next week. Charges, of course, 
can always be reversed.

Organic oils and extracts were then 
discussed by Lester Reed. He dealt 
chiefly with the synthetic processes for 
obtaining oils which are a duplicate for 
many fruit flavors, among which are 
orange, banana, pineapple, and ap ^'e. 
This latter fruit owes its particular odor 
and taste to the presence of acetic acid 
and methyl alcohol, which, in growth, 
combine to form methyl acetate. Mr. 
Reed also named a few synthetic per- 
fumes. One of these, oil of attor or 
rose oil, has become very important in 
the perfume world. The making of real 
oil of attar requires tons of roses at an 
enormous cost for a trifling amount of 
product. The cost of the real extract is 
#1000 per pound. 

Woodrow Dellinger spoke on "Cellu- 
lose". He expounded chiefly the use of 
cotton, which is almost pure cellulose, 
in the manufacture of paper, explosives, 
cellophane, and celluloid articles. Cot- 
ton is dissolved in sodium hydroxide to 
obtain the pure product. This is then 
placed in nitric acid, and gun cotton is 
obtained. Collodion, for use in torpe- 
does and large guns, is obtained by 
placing gun cotton in acetone. Smoke- 
less powder, for smaller guns, uses car- 
bon disulphide instead of acetone. Mr. 
Dellinger pointed out that a number of 
people erroneously confuse mercerized 
cotton with cellulose. It is not that, 
but cotton which has not been complete- 
ly changed to the final product. 

A general discussion on scientific prob- 
lems and discovery preceded the adjourn, 
ment of the organization. 

By History Savants 



Ruth Garner (to Sammy) — Honey, 
since you've already eaten three helpings 
of my first batch of biscuits, I'm going 
to bake some more for you tomorrow 
morning. Won't that be lovely? Won't 
that be — speak to me, darling, speak to 

I guess I lack the true conviction 
To write sophisticated fiction, 
The stuff the truly literate cult 
Astrophizes as "adult" 
Perhaps I haven't lived enough 
To write sophisticated stuff; 
For though I've traveled here and 

Among the somewhat human race, 
And mixed with people everywhere, 
In all the years that I can trace 
I've not seen gathered in one spot 
So rotten and so bad a lot 
Of traitors, letchers, hounds and 

As realist 'authors' put in what 
They call "sophisticated books." 

So, if to write sophistication 
Must presuppose association 
With such adults as writers gather 
In such a book, I think I'd rather 
Write Cinderella stuff that's "sweet" 
And pure as hymns beneath a 

Than be sophisticated and meet 
Nothing but such unpleasant people. 
(Barton Braley from "Life".) 

(Continued from Page One) 

The club's next group of numbers was 
sung a capella. Each number of the 
group showed the beautiful harmonies 
and the excellent blend of the voices of 
the singers. The group included "O 
Bone Jesu" (Palestrina) , "Lo, What a 
Branch of Beauty" (Praetorius) , and 
"Matona, Lovely Maiden" (Lassus) . 

Miss Martha Elser, an excellent fresh- 
man violinist from Harrisburg, then 
played the Hungarian dance "Czardas" 
by Monti and "Meditation" (Thais) by 
Massenet. The first number contains a 
passage of difficult harmonics which 
Miss Elser played with clear preciseness. 
The "Meditation" was an excellent num- 
ber to display the fine quality of tone 
which Miss Elser possesses. 

Miss Matilda Bonouni then sang the 
popular "II Bacio" (Arditi) in Italian. 
"Life," by Curran, was her second num- 
ber. Her delightful stage manner and 
her pleasing voice made her numbers 
most appealing. 

The last group was a group of folk 
songs by the glee club. The Viennese 
folk song, "The Old Refrain," arranged 
by Fritz Kreisler, was sung beautifully. 
"River, River," the next number, is a 
Chilean folk song. "Turn Ye to Me," 
a Gaelic folk song, was the third. To 
end the program, the whole club joined 
in the snappy, delightful negro spiritual, 
"Scandalize My Name". 

The personnel of the club follows: 

Sopranos — Matilda Bonanni, June 
Eby, Catherine Heckman, Regina Oyler, 
Rae Anne Reber, Margaret Sharp, Jane 
Showers, Winona Shroff, Helen Sumny. 

Contraltos — Margaret Early, Martha

Sholter, Richard Slaybaugh. 

Accompanist — Ruth Bailey. 

Gjeen Blotter Meeting Enlivened 
B- Jiverse Contrit utions; 
nCook ■iook Suggested 

The Green Blotter convened in a reg- 
ular session at the home of Dr. and Mrs. 
Struble, March 16. The organization 
had as its guests Drs. Shenk and Steven- 
son of the History department. 

The gathering, in spite of the ab- 
sence of several members who were 
forced to remain on the campus for play 
practices, was unusually lively. Criti- 
cism flowed freely, the guests assuming 
an active part in the discussion. 

Jane Shellenberger painted a vivid 
picture of Cold Spring, with the wheezy, 
one-a-day train puffing into the station 
to give the station-master his only con- 
tact with the outside world. Her word 
choice was unusually excellent, and 
painted the familiar scene well. Marion 
May then read an autobiography written 
by another member, whereupon the 
other people attempted to identify the ! 
left-handed person who never ate peas 
with her knife. The effort will be con- 
tinued at the next meeting. 

Mae Fauth presented an uproariously 
humorous letter of application to the 
Board of Education at Ennyburg. 
Since the entreaty was for a position in 
the Science department, she employed 
only scientific terms in describing her- 
self. This paper was followed by a pert 
drama, the work of Lois Miller, which 
was a satire on the freedom of thought 
in the literary societies. Her clever 
handling of this type of writing was 

"First Communion," by Henry Pala- 
tini, was a description of the sacrament 
as the writer saw it. Clyde Mentzer, in 
direct contrast, reverted to the entirely 
humorous with a werse tit'e-up, or rather 
a terse write-up, on the stelightful dyle, I 
that is the delightful style, of misplaced j 
consonants. His second paper, on the , 
eating of pie with salt, was a Postian 
deprecation of this habit. Betty Schaak 
then read a one-acc melodrama of the 
gay nineties, upon which she and Babe 
Earley collaborated. The work has a 
musical score which includes such touch- 
ing old ballads as "Daisy, Daisy". The 
co-authors are seeking for permission to 
stage the drama in chapel some morn-

certainly provide fifteen minutes of solid

which was before unconsidered. It was

forth a new and somewhat surprising

in the opinion that to get her to write 
a "Green Blotter Cook Book" would 
be an invaluable service to humanity.

"Quittie" Sales Made 
From Breakage Fees 

The Junior class, in planning with t L e 
faculty a financial program to facility 
the publication of the annual Quittap a , 
hilla, has made several changes in cu s . 
tomary practice. 

First, all Juniors must have paid at 
least a total of ten dollars of their cl ass 
dues in order to enter classes after the 
Easter vacation, which regulation will b e 
strictly enforced by the administration 
and the dues will be payable at the col. 
lege treasurer's office. 

Secondly, any member of the college 
who desires to purchase a Quittie of this 
year's publication, and does not desire 
to pay cash for it, may charge the pur- 
chase to his breakage fee, if that fee re. 
mainder is large enough to cover the 
price of the book. In the event of a 
shortage in the fee, the remainder of the 
purchase amount will be added by the 
administration to the student's account, 
staff have small contract blanks by which 
students may charge the Quittie to their 
sudents may charge the Quittie to their 
breakage fee, and are canvassing t h e 
campus for such subscriptions to the 
book. This opoprtunity makes the pur- 
chase of the book more agreeable to the 
students and is planned to increase its

Cowling and Sneath 
To Be Speakers At 
64th Commencement 


Inauguration to Take Place; Dr. 
Lynch Will Deliver Bacca- 
laureate Sermon 

Two eminent alumni have been pro- 
cured to speak at the sixty-fourth com- 
mencement in June, Dr. Donald John 
Cowling, President of Carleton College, 
Northfield, Minn., and Dr. Elias Her- 
shey Sneath, professor emeritus at Yale. 
Dr. Cowling is outstanding in the field 
of education. He was graduated from 
Lebanon Valley in '02. He received his 
A. M. '40, B. D. '06, Ph. D. '09 from 
Yale, D. D., Baker, '09; L.L. D., Knox 
College '19. He has held many impor- 
tant positions both as a professor and 
head of various educational councils. In 
'18-' 19 he was president of the Associa- 
tion of Colleges, Chairman, American 
educational delegation to Russia, com- 
mittee in charge British Educational 
Mission. Dr. Cowling is a Phi Beta 
Kappa; he will deliver the commence- 
ment address. 

Dr. Sneath was graduated from our 
Alma Mater in '81. He too, like, Dr. 
Cowling, received his A. M. L.L. D., 
B. D. and Ph. D. at Yale. He was a 
professor of Philosophy, Relegion and 
Education at the same institution and 
was made professor emeritus there in 
1923. No more needs to be said about 
Dr. Sneath for he is quite well known 
on the campus. Reports of his works 
have been given at Readers' Club. Dr. 
Sneath is going to take change of the 
short inauguration ceremonies of Dr. 
Lynch. Both he and Dr. Cowling will 
address the alumni. Dr. Sneath was to 
have been here at the inauguration cere- 
monies of Dr. Lynch but, in view of the 
economic condition, Dr. Lynch post- 
poned a big formal inauguration and 
will include it during commencement 
week. Dr. Lynch will deliver the Bacca- 
laureate address on the Sunday of Com- 
mencement week. 


At the regular "Y" vesper service 
in the men's dormitory on Sunday 
evening Mr. Thomas Edwards spoke 
to the group on the "Literature of 
the Bible." Mr. Edwards is an Eng- 
lish major in the college and so was 
able to outline very interestingly the 
types of literature and show their ap- 
pearance in the Holy Bible. He 
showed that the Bible contains 
poetry, short narratives, historical 
sketches, statistical records, etc., that 
compare with the besc secular Utera- 
ture of the world. The poetry is 
especially good because it agiee* per- 
fectly with certain laws of t oetty, 
and especially that which says that 
good poetry reflects the emotionr.i 
experiences of a people recalled in a 
time of tranquility. 

Mr. Ray Johnson conducted the 
service. Devotions were led by Mr 
Philip Underwood. It was an- 
nounced that at the service on the 
following Sunday evening there will 
be a special speaker who will most 
probably be one of the faculty.

Of Debate 

The chapel period on Friday, March 
24, was devoted to a brief concert by 
our chorus — a group of about thirty- 
nve mixed voices. This club, though still 
m its early adolescence, is rich in prom- 
ise for the future. Another outstanding 
success for the Conservatory; this short 
recital introduced the splendid talent 
and ability of our students to the camp- 
us in general. It was especially appre- 
ciated since this is the first time most of 
Us have had the opportunity of hearing 
this group. Dressed in maroon robes 
with white collars the chorus presented

The men's affirmative debating team 
of Lebanon Valley College met the 
men's negative team of Gettysburg Col- 
lege in a forensic contest last Wednes- 
day evening in the college Y. M. C. A. 
auditorium at Gettysburg. The subject 
for debate was the war debt problem, 
but instead of using the regular debat- 
ing procedure, the Oregon system was 
followed. Though employing this popu- 
lar Oregon type for the first time in his- 
tory, the local debators gave an excel- 
lent account of themselves. Just how 
much impression they made will never 
be known for the debate had previously 
been agreed upon as a no-decision af- 

Lebanon Valley's representatives were 
Chester Goodman and Allen Buzzell,

the evening. He presented the main 

(Continued on Page 4, Column 3) 

A large audience of music lovers en 
joyed the recital by Miss Ella R. Moy- 
er and Mrs. Beulah Van Reed, in Engle 
Hall on Thursday evening, March 23. 

First on the program was a group 
from the German Lieder, sung by Mrs. 
Van Reed. There were selections by 
Richard Strauss, the greatest composer 
of today, by J. Brahms, whose hun- 
dredth anniversary is being celebrated 
this year, and by Hugo Wolf, a distin- 
guished German song writer of the 
nineteenth century. 

Miss Moyer's first group included 
three numbers from the Polish Chopin, 
the greatest exponent of pianoforte mu- 
sic that the world has ever known. 

Mrs. Van Reed then sang an aria 
from "L'enfant Prodigue," an opera by 
Claude Debussy. Debussy's work is of 
the modern French school. 

"Hark, Hark! the Lark," the delight- 
ful song written by Schubert and tran- 
scribed for piano by Liszt, was Miss 
Moyer's next number. This was followed 
by "Cracovienne Fantastique, by the 
king of pianists, I. J. Paderewski. 
Grieg's "On the Mountains" ended Miss 
Moyer's group. 

The concluding numbers of the pro- 
gram were sung in English. They were 
"Bird Songs at Eventide" by Eric Coates, 
three little fairy songs — exquisite little 
miniatures — by Maurice Besley, and 
"The Bird of the Wilderness" by the 
American, Edward Horsman. 

Mrs. Van Reed's songs were varied 
so that they- showed the wide range* and 
rich tone quality of her lovely contralto 
voice. Miss Moyer's numbers displayed 
to advantage her skillful technique and 
splendid interpretations. 

The negative team of Lebanon Valley College met the affirmative 
team of the University of Pennsylvania on Friday night to debate upon 
the que;tion: .Resolved, that the constitution of the United States should 
provide for a government with a responsible ministry. U. of P. won, 2-1. 
Previous to the debate with L. V. C. they debated the question over the 
radio. Calvin Reber and Gerald Heilman upheld the negative and Wil- 
liam Hastings and Irving Segal the affirmative. 

Mr. Hastings, the first affirmative speaker, pointed out the duties 
and part played by the English Cabinet. 
He was a very charming speaker and 
should be commended for his good 
puns, one of which was that Congress 
digressed too much and then Congress 
was warned to keep off digress (de 
gress). As the flaws in our own system 
he mentioned our check and balance 
system, and the dead-locks resulting 
from such a system; the capacity of our 
own cabinet's only acting as an advi- 
sory body with no real power. In re- 
gard to the check and balance system 
he said that most people today have no 
balance to draw checks on. 

Calvin Reber, L. V. C. first speaker, 
showed how the cabinet system would 

not be desirable in the U. S. and how 
difficult it would be to introduce it into 
our form of government. He said that 
in our country it would lead to frequent 
and unnecessary elections of governing 

Mr. Segal, second affirmative speaker, 
showed the speed in which bills were 
acted upon in the cabinet form of gov- 
ernment. When important bills are once 
introduced they must be acted upon im- 
mediately, they cannot be disregarded 
or delayed as long as they can in our 
government. Then each man takes a 
personal interest in the passage of these

The second sunrise Lenten service was 
held in the chapel of the college on 
Friday morning, March 24, at six thirty. 
The meeting was again in charge of Mr. 
Steffy who had planned the program to- 
gether with Miss Kieffer of the Y. W. C. 
A. cabinet. Mr. Morgan Edwards was 
the speaker, and spoke about personal 
work in the Christian life, using as his

Kalo's fifty-third anniversary pro- 
gram, April 7 and 8, bids fair to be the 
most spectacular that the society has en- 
deavored to present. The staging of 
"The Last Mile" by John Wexley, on 
Friday the 7th, followed by the third 
annual dinner dance on Saturday at the 
new General Sutter Hotel, Lititz, will 
complete a program perhaps unparal 
leled in Kalo history. 

In producing "The Last Mile," the 
society has in its hands one of the most 
powerful dramatic productions of the 
past decade. The scene is laid in the 
death house of an Oklahoma peniten- 
tiary, where are introduced seven con- 
\ic\~.s awaiting electrocution. The re- 
sulting events, climaxed by c fierce but 
futile prison riot, stir the emotions of 
the audience until the final curtain. 

The cast, with few exceptions, is com- 
posed of thoroughly seasoned players. 
William Speg, taking a leading part for 
the first time on the L. V. boards, is re- 
membered for his work in "Jourrfey's 
End" and "Androcles and the Lion.' 
Walter Krumbiegel achieved recognition 
for his part as the lion in "Androcles 
and the Lion," and as the German pris

the last Readers' Club meeting held at

an interesting program for the evening 
but was unfortunately called away at the 
last minute so the president, Babe Earley,

To Large Audience 

Miss Kathryn Lutz, Clio's anniversary 
president, called a business meeting of 
the society Friday evening. Reports of 
the anniversary committee chairmen 
were read. 

The cast of the play is practicing dili- 
gently every night. "The Taming of the 
Shrew" is a conventional Shakespeare 
comedy hinging about a young man's 
(Mae Fauth, by the way) reducing his 
wife (Katherine to you) to a state of 
submission. The Clionian Literary So- 
ciety takes this means of inviting all 
prospective husbands to attend the play 
and get a few pointers on how to equip 
their spouses with inhibitions, neurosis 
and phobia. Future wives are invited 
also to learn how to put up a little com- 
petition. (Not judged entirely safe for 
children) . 

On Tuesday evening an interesting 
students' recital was held in Engle Hall. 

Miss Francis Schearer nicely played 
Chopin's "Prelude in B Minor" and 
Schutt's "Etude Mignonne." 

"The Venetian Boat Song" by Men- 
delssohn and an arrangement of Bee- 
thoven's "Scherzo" by Krentzlin, were 
the charming piano numbers played by 
Miss Mary Gingrich. 

Master Archer Crosley, the precocious 
twelve year old violin student of Profes- 
sor Malsh, played Huber's Concert in 
G Major with almost flawless intona- 
tion and with a beautiful rich tone qual- 

Miss Beatrice Fink gave the next piano 
solo, the beautiful "Idilio" by Tack. 

Miss Catherine Deisher then further 
varied the program with a pleasing or- 
gan solo, "Contrasts" by Browne. 

"Consolations" (Liszt) and a Scotch 
Poem by Mac Dowell were M^s Anna 
Mary Herr's lovely contribution to the 

Master Crosley then delighted the au- 
dience with three more numbers. First 
was the brilliant "March" by Bach. The 
"Andante" of Reiding was the outstand- 
ing little violinist's second number. 
Lachmund's magnificent idea cf "Per- 
petual Motion" was the final number of 
the program. Master Crosley was very 
ably accompanied by Mr. Clarence 
Heckler of Harrisburg.

A college student very often finds 
himself wondering, "Why am I here?" 
During such disturbing times we are now 
facing, we desire to be out in the world 
bearing our share. It seems sometimes 
as if we are merely shunning our duty. 
But then the suggestion comes that we 
are preparing for better service. That 
sounds good, but just how should we 
prepare? What should we receive from 
college — good marks? Is that all? 

Charles W. Eliot answers these ques- 
tions in some notes that he left for a 
lecture on the qualities a student should 
take from college for success in life. 
These are the suggestions he makes: 

First: An available body, not neces- 
sarily the muscle of an athlete, . good 
circulation, digestion, power to sleep 
(sic), and alert, steady nerves. 

Second: Power of sustained mental 

Third: The habit of independent 
thinking on books, prevailing customs, 
current events. University training, the 
opposite of military or industrial. 

Fourth: The habit of quiet, unob- 
trusive, self -regulated conduct, not ac- 
cepted from others or influenced by the 
vulgar breath. 

Fifth: Reticience, reserve; not many 
acquaintances but a few intimate friends. 
Carrying in his face the character so 
plainly to be seen there by the most 
casual observer, that nobody ever makes 
to him dishonorable proposal. 

The standard presented by Dr. Eliot 
is comprehensive. Let us puase just a 
moment from our daily routine and con- 
sider ourselves. How do we stand on 
all five points? Are we overemphasiz- 
ing one and neglecting another? If we 
are, then we are not getting from col- 
lege life all it has to offer. 

College is not a "four-year loaf," as 
some one facetiously remarked. It is a 
four-year life. We have come here not 
to study, nor to play, but to live. If we 
neglect any one of these five points, we 
are really finding the purpose of college. 

Let us accept this standard as our pur- 
pose in college, and so live. 

Now there's a bill to guarantee bank 
deposits. In other words, they'll tax you 
to get the money to pay your loss — "Clar- 


It is the custom of Lebanon Valley 
College to award to individuals who par- 
ticipate in certain campus activities some 
tangible token in acknowledgment of 
their efforts. Thus do the athletes re- 
ceive their letters, the Y. M. C. A. and 
Y. W. C. A. cabinets their emblems, the 
La Vie staff members their scrolls. This 
is as it should be, for faithful service 
throughout four years of college surely 
merits formal recognition. It is needless 
to state that every fortunate person who 
receives a gold football or a Senate pin 
attaches to that emblem much more 
thf - its intrinsic value. It is for him the 
embodiment of the esteem his labors 
have earned, a just due which none 
would begrudge him. 

The splendid exhibitions which the 
debaters gave last week against the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania and Gettysburg, 
as well as against earlier opponents, re- 
mind us that debating Lebanon Val- 
ley is an activity which as yet lias not 
received the recognition it deserves. 
Anyone who has ever participated in de- 
bating is aware of the vast amount of 
labor involved in the preparation of a 
weighty question. The time spent in 
other activities can be matched hour for 
hour by the varsity debaters. 

It certainly is not easy co speak before 
an audience and to thinl' under fire. 
"Bravery" is an element in debating as 
truly as in athletic contests. And it 
seems to us that the glory of Alma 
Mater is not dimmed in the least by the 
exploits of the debating teams. Success 
in debates speaks no better for the team 
members than for the institution they 

So we suggest that at least partial 
amends be made — that an emblem or 
some other token of recognition be 
tendered to debaters who have me: 
some standard such as participation in 
a minimum number of debates. De- 
served recognition car never be expen- 
sive or unwise. 


The officers for the third term were 
elected on Friday evening at the regular 
Delphian business meeting. Miss Mil- 
dred Christiansen was chosen president ! 
to succeed Miss Marion Kruger. The 
following were elected to fill the other ] 
offices: Miss Arlene Heckrote, critic; I 
Ruth Garner, vice-president; Miss Ver- 
na Grissinger, recording secretary; Miss 
Ann Butterwick, corresponding secre- 
tary; Miss Catherine Wagner, chaplain; 
Miss Charlotte Stabley, pianist; Miss 
Sara Lupton and Miss Jean Bitting, 
wardens. The newly elected officers will 
be installed on Friday night by the out- 
going president. The committees in 
charge of the tea given for Clio were 
highly commended for the success of 
the affair. 


The last student recital of the winter 
series will be held Wednesday evening, 
April 5, at 8 o'clock in Engle hall. 

Those who will play solos a»-e Regina 
Oyler, clarinet; Theodore Walkrr, trom- 
bone; Martha Elser, violin; Nancy Bow- 
man, Mary Funk, Rae Anna F>ber, and 
Helen Summy, piano. 

The Lebanon Valley College glee club, 
which gave a very successful concert at 
Ephrata last Thursday and a delightful 
exhibition in the chapel on Friday morn- 
ing, will give a concert at the First 
United Brethren Church at Palmyra on 
Thursday night and one at Philadelphia 
on Friday. 

On Tuesday, April 4, the public will' 
have a chance to hear this well-coached 
club give a concert in Engle hall. The 
admission will be thirty-five cents. 

Miss Mary Gillespie, director of the 
Conservatory, was a judge on Tuesday 
evening, at the Cass County Vocal Con- 
test which was held at Pottsville. There 
were splendid exhibitions by high school 
glee clubs and there was also fine solo 
work and beautiful group singing. 

Robert Littell, eminent dramatic critic 
and author, has charged that no young 
man in our country is completely edu- 
cated. In his article in "Harper's Maga- 
zine," he has listed the accomplishments 
which would constitute a completely ed- 
ucated man. His list of desiderata is 
very long, containing many items which 
seem rather superfluous. He says, "High- 
er than almost any other accomplish- 
ment on the list do I place music. If it 
were not for the certainty that our edu- 
cators would make it as deadly during 
school and as shunned in after life as 
that badly embalmed language, I shall 
advocate the substitution of music. 

"Music is, or ought to be, an essen- 
tial part of every civilized human be- 
ing's life. Economic necessity, the radio, 
and the phonograph have put the play- 
ing of music beyond most Americans. 
Our children should bring this back. 
My choice would be the piano' — the vio- 
lin is far more painful in incompetent 
hands, and most other instruments are 
not meant to be heard singly. The saxo- 
phone and the ukulele should be placed 
on a par with the taking of drugs." 

"A civilized man should know how to 
read. The educators tumble over one 
another with new methods of teaching 
children how to make sense out of print, 
but not a single pedagogue, so far as I 
know, has successfully tackled the prob- 
lem of how to keep people reading 
books once they have learned that it can 
be done. 

"If the young man over whose head 
hangs this list of accomplishments could 
not find- time, because of the necessity 
of heeling the 'News' or keeping dates 
with co-eds, for more than a few of 
these skills, let a fluent reading and 
speaking knowledge of at least one for- 
eign language be among them, French 
or German preferably both." 

Other requirements listed are the abil- 
ity to drive a car, set a broken leg, and 
make horses obey commands. 

Perhaps, although the educators 
would violently disagree, our students 
would be rather pleased with the de- 
siderata of Mr. Littell. 

Now that George Bernard Shaw is in 
America for the first time, he is giving 
a heavy dose of Shavianisms for the 
benefit of our nation. As soon as he 
arrived, he said that he knew more of 
America than its inhabitants do. With 
that for a starter, he gave a very logical 
criticism of the unjust treatment re- 
ceived by Tom Mooney. He sarcastically 
summed up Mooney's prison term by 
saying, "To bury a man alive in a vault 
for seventeen years is extremely foolish. 
But if Mooney was such a bad man, why 
didn't you have the courage and char- 
acter to shoot him?" 

Shaw also accused the Americans of 
giving no thought to the qualifications 
of their officials, provided that a pic- 
ture is taken of them with a baby — any 
baby. A few sayings which he gave to 
reporters and interviewers are: 

Lenin was the greatest man since 
George Washington. 

I first read about technocracy fifty 
years ago. I am hardly up to date 
enough on it now to talk. 

If women and the working class won't 
save us, nothing will. The proletariat is 
the only card we have left. 

Happy people are found only in 

In the "New York Times" part of his 
address to university students at Hong 
Kong has been reprinted. In this criti- 
cism of universities, he says that every 
university should be leveled to the 
ground. The recent war which showed 
how little civilization there was, was 
made by people with university educa- 
tions. There are two dangerous classes 
in the world — the half -educated, who ( 

have destroyed one half of civilization, 
and the wholly educated, who have 
nearly destroyed the world. 

The university turns out people with 
artificial minds. School text-books should 
not be read, because they show very little 
literary skill. However, they should be 
read only enough to prevent your being 
ignominously kicked out of the univer- 
sity. Read all the good books and steep 
yourselves in all the revolutionary books. 
Go up to your neck in communism and 
everything of the kind. He then makes 
the startling statement, "If you don't 
begin to be a revolutionist at the age of 
twenty, then at fifty you will be a most 
impossible old fossil. If you are a red 
revolutionary at twenty, you have some 
chance of being up to date at forty." 

Shaw topped all this off by saying 
that his best course, henceforth, is to 
shut up, to which it has been remarked 
that that might also have been his best 
course heretofore. 

The following poem has been written 
by Margaret Lathrop Law which has 
been said to apply to him very aptly: 

Your Mind 

I hate your mind. 
It is a sharp-pointed sword, 
Forged of well-tempered steel, 
Which stabs and cuts, but never 

Aiming unerringly for a victim's 

But never damaged by the blood it 

I hate your mind. 
Like a high-powered locomotive, 
Swift-moving over exactly parallel 


To a desired end, it infallibly 

But without seeing blossom or tree, 
Never knowing if a body lies 
crushed beneath it. 

Japan has withdrawn from the League 
of Na tions. Heretofore, Japan has en- 
joyed a prestige which has placed her on 
the level with greatest European na- 
tions. Now, because of a supposed na- 
tional necessit/, she rut rendered all this, 
cognizant of the fact that it casts a 
shadow upon her repute. Moreover, it 
is a break in her world relations. Now, 
despite her withdrawal, Japan is con- 
stantly reiterating that she is working 
toward the prevention of a great war, 
differentiating her military effort in 
Manchuria from the aggressive action 
condemned by the League of Nations 
and repudiated by the Briand-Kellogg 
treaty. She hopes that before the two 
years necessary to make her resignation 
legal and final, she will have found her 
way back into the League. 

The great trouble with the school of 
experience is that the course is so long 
that the graduates are too old to go to 
work. — Henry Ford. 


Dr. Lynch will be very busy this week 
for he has an imposing list of engage- 
ments. On Monday evening, March 27, 
he presided at the Jewish protestation 
meeting in Lebanon and delivered an 
address. Drs. Wallace and Butterwick 
accompanied him to the meeting. Dr. 
Lynch will give the sermon at the morn- 
ing religious service at the Hershey In- 
dustrial School on April 2. In the af- 
ternoon he will be at the Young People's 
Rally at Campbelltown. That same eve- 
ning with Dr. and Mrs. Derickson, Dr. 
and Mrs. Lynch will go to Wyomissing 
to be the guests of Prof. William Mar- 
tin. Later they will go to the Saint 
John's Lutheran church in Reading for 
the visualization sermon. On the fifth 
of April, Dr. Lynch has been asked to 
give the anniversary sermon at Clarks- 
grove church. Friday, April 6, he will 
speak at the Lebanon High School. On 
the program of the Southern Conven- 
tion District of the Pennsylvania State 
Education Association for April 8, Dr. 
Lynch is listed to address the gathering 
on "The Place of the Teacher's Prepa- 
ration in Higher Education." 



A certain fellow was telling how he 
almost fell for a gag last year. "I was 
in a bull session," he said, "and they 
tried to tell me India was a continent. 
So I went over to my room and looked 
it up in the Book of Knowledge. I found 
out it wasn't, so I went back and told 
them. Then they tried to tell me Aus- 
tralia was a continent but they couldn't 
fool me on that one. I wouldn't even 
look that up!" And they douse lights! 

There's a certain crew of fellows on 
the third floor of the dorm who seem 
to delight in wrecking each others' 
rooms. What a delightful pastime. I 
wonder if these same boys still write let- 
ters to Santa Clauc — if they still sit on 
the parlor rug playing with building 
blocks. But then some minds do have 
queer twists, and, as long as these minds 
remain docile and stay in their own 
quarters, they deserve pity and a prayer 
that they mature in due time. 

Here's one of Browning's stunts for 
you. I'll sketch out the story. You find 
the point. Personally, when I want puz- 
zles I turn to crosswords and jig-saws, 
where I expect it. I don't read poetry, 
yet Browning is great, of course. All of 
which is quite a digression. I was to tell 
a story. 

A certain two fellows were hopping 
home together. They were standing at 
the toll end of the Clarks Ferry bridge. 
"Traffic is slow here," remarked the one. 
"They can get a close look at us. Think 
I'll straighten my clothes." He proceed- 
ed to arrange himself. "Now," he said, 
"is my hair straight?" "Yes," remarked 
the other, drily, "both of them!" 

This should be left for Ripley, but 
I'm stealing a march on him. There are 
two junior men who are sweet nineteen 
and have never been kissed! And they 
are otherwise of social prominence. I 
can't mention their names, but one's is 
synonymous with an open space sur- 
rounded by trees. The other's might be 
the shortening of a Bible name. Now 
you guess, I'm tired. 

There's a certain professor on the 
campus who never fails to hold up the 
present younger generation against at- 
tacks. His knowledge of history and of 
his own generation is the foundation 
for the position he takes. Right now 
there is a class in History 36 which 
agrees entirely. The group is studying 
social angles of 18th Century England. 
And what a revelation Walpole, Lecky, 
and others make. Obscenity to the nth 
degree. Wholesale murder for the pure 
joy of killing. Street brawls. Students 
indulging (with the company of profes- 
sors) in prolonged drinking sprees. 
Painted, over-dressed, periwigged ladies 
standing at gaming tables for hours at 
end. And all this in the higher genre 
of society, too. From noble to laborer, 
all alike. And then hands are raised in 
horror at the immortality of the present 

Spring again! And we hope it stays. 
Other seasons may have their advan- 
tages, but give me the good old first sea- 
son for sheer joy and zest in living. Out 
with the pipes and veils! We'll dance! 

All who joy would win 
Must share it, — happiness was born a 
twin. — Byron. 

Every hero becomes a bore at last.-— 

To believe in the heroic makes he- 
roes. — Disraeli. 

Dost thou think because thou art vir- 
tuous, there shall be no more cakes and 
ale ? — Shakespeare. 

The proper study of mankind is man 
— Pope. 



Seniors Win Close 
Game From Juniors 


Fourth- Year Men Roll Up 33-28 
Score to Take Lead In 
Class League 

The Seniors met the Juniors in an in- 
terclass basketball game last week, and 
emerged victorious, 33 to 28, thus re- 
peating their feat of last year by cop- 
ping the interclass pennant for the sec- 
ond season in succession. The game 
was a play-off game, the two upper class- 
es having been in a tie for the class loop 

The fray was close throughout, the 
score being tied in many instances. The 
first half was exceptionally rough, but 
the final canto showed a clean type of 
play. "Captain Joe" Volkin, at for- 
ward for the losers, carried off high 
scoring honors, dropping in seven dou- 
ble-deckers and one free toss for a 15 
point total. Shrope, for the Seniors, 
had five field goals and a foul for 11 
points. The Juniors led at the half, 
13 to 12. 

Volkin opened the first half scoring 
with a double-decker from under the 
basket, which was followed up by one 
from the mid-court by Say lor of the 
Seniors. The Juniors then jumped to 
an 9 to 2 lead on field goals by Kan- 
drat, Volkin and Shaffer, who also made 
a foul. At this point the Seniors came 
to life and brought their score even with 
the Juniors, at 11 all. Murphy ended 
the Senior scoring for the initial half 
with a free toss, sending the Seniors in- 
to the lead for the first time in the game, 
but just before the gun for the half 
sounded, Shaffer dropped in a twin- 
pointer from under the basket to send 
the Juniors out in front and end the 
half 13 to 12 in favor of the third year 

Saylor started things off with a bang 
for the Seniors in the second half with 
a free toss, and the bombardment did 
not stop until the Seniors had ran up a 
20-13 score. The Juniors made a come- 
back at this point but were ljover able 
again to overtake their opponents. 

A desperate rally in the closing min- 
utes of play, led by Voikin. brought 
them within 2 points of the Seniors but 
at this point, field goals by Murphy, 
Kraybill, and Shrope placed the game 
on ice for the Seniors and gave them 
their second straight inicrclas-, league

Harry Zech Elected 

Manager of Tennis 

In response to a call issued by Coach 
Stevenson, the aspirants for the '33 var- 
sity tennis team met last Friday in a 
short session for the purpose of dis- 
cussing various items of interest and to 
elect a student manager. The honor of 
this position was unanimously delegated 
to Harry Zech whose deep enthusiasm 
end ardent love of the game cannot be 
denied by anyone who has witnessed his 
utter contentment while on the courts 

An incomplete schedule for the com- 
ing season was presented, and plans for 
an elimination tournament held by the 
"L" Club for the purpose of selecting 
members of this year's squad who are 
capable of holding their positions was 
also planned. Those present at the 
meeting were Captain Donmoyer and 
Fred Lehman, members of the '32 team; 
Boyd Lantz and George Konsko, capable 
aspirants for that squad; Harry Zech, 
Carl Myers, Richard Walborn, Richard 
Ax, Jack Glen, Theodore Nye, Anthony 
Jagnetak, and Arthur Spickler. 

The schedule: 
Wednesday, April 26 — Dickinson — 

Friday, April 28 — Juniata — Away. 
Monday, May 1 — Elizabethtown — Home. 
Saturday, May 6 — St. Joseph's — Home. 
Monday, May 8 — Dickinson — Away. 
Wednesday, May 10 — Juniata — Home. 
Thursday, May 11 — Moravian — Away. 
Friday, May 19 — St. Joseph's — Away. 
Monday, May 22 — Albright — Away. 
Friday, May 26 — Elizabethtown — Away. 
Monday, May 29 — Albright — Home. 
(2 matches with Gettysburg pending). 



We notice in looking over the St. 
Louis Cardinal lineup in their pre-sea- 
son games that Charley Gelbert, L. V. C. 
'29, is not playing at his usual shortstop 
position. Gelbert, injured in a hunting 
accident last fall, although recovering 
rapidly, does not expect to don a Cardi- 
nal uniform, until later in the season. 

The Seniors have won the interclass 
basketball pennant for the second con- 
secutive year, but there is some doubt 
among the members of the freshmen 
quintet as to who the real champion 
should be. It appears that the Frosh 
were to have played a game with the 
Sophs. This game was never played, 
reason unknown. If this game would 
have been played, and won by the 
Frosh, the final league standing would 
have been a triple tie for first place, 
and would have given the Frosh a 
chance at the league crown.

Miss Catherine Wagner gave the first 
report which was on T. E. Shaw's trans- 
lation of Homer's Odyssey. Mr. Shaw, 
who will be more familiar to many peo- 
ple as Lawrence of Arabia is full of 
many whims and idiosyncrasies which 
Miss Wagner treated in a most delight- 
ful fashion. In her very well prepared 
talk she called this book "The most in- 
teresting translation of one of the most 
interesting books ever written." 

"Plays for College Students," a book 
reviewed by Miss Marietta Ossi, is a 
compilation of plays suitable for pre- 
sentation on a college stage by a group 
of amateurs. "L," the first play seemed 
to call for a quite elaborate settitg and 
many participants. Miss Ossi very suc- 
cintly remarked, "One can stand on any 
street corner, see it all, and at the same 
time save the price of admission." 
"Moon of the Caribees" by Eugene 
O'Neill, as the title suggests, is a drama 
of the West Indies, possessing very little 

The next play, "Houseparty," cap- 
tured the imagination of all those pres- 
ent. It is replete with thrills having a 
corpse, a group of clever college stu- 
dents, several faints and a few burned 
letters all combining to make a most 
complicated plot. "Then, too," as Miss 
Ossi said, "the punning is very good 
throughout." "Lima Beans," centering 
about one husband, one wife and a 
huckster (not the eternal triangle af- 
fair, however), is a play seemingly 
written by a vegetarian for the express 
purpose of eulogizing this most lowly 
of household vegetables. 

The next dissertation was upon that 
much discussed literary figure, T. S. 
Eliot. Miss Gloria Lavanture listed three 
objections often made by critics in dis- 
cussing his works. Mr. Eliot is said to 
be too impersonal, to use quotations too 
abundantly and to make too frequent 
use of contrast. This often serves to 
confuse and annoy the lay reader who 
as is consequence considers him as an 
author to be avoided in the future. He 
combines the literary and the common 
in a sort of associative shorthandedness. 
In the "Wasteland," a poem filled with 
futility and disillusion, he unites the 
physical and the spiritual with a wealth 
of symbols which give his work a rich- 


Those L. V. C. bat wielders have not 
as yet been able to prove their wares to 
Coach Mylin on good old terra firma. 
Jupe Pluvius kept them indoors in the 
initial practices, and then old man win- 
ter came back in all his glory and 
snowed under the bats, cage, diamond 
and whatnot. However, with the snow 
all melted, the diamond aspirants should 
be out on the field this week in all their 
glory. There will be little chance of 
practice for the first game on April 1, 
with Mt. St. Mary's at Emmittsburg. 
Unless the gym work helps out, this 
game might have to be called off. 

Next to the originator of a good sen- 
tence is the first quoter of it. — Emerson. 

Mr. Edmund Umberger, a newcomer 
to the club, gave an interesting report 
on "Too True to Be Good" which he saw 
in Philadelphia. As usual, the play is 
filled with many cryptic comments which 
Shaw very optimistically hopes will 
shock his audience. The idea, around 
which the play centers, seems to be that 
microbes do not give diseases to human 
beings but get diseases from them. At 
the end of the first act, the microbe, 
who is one of the main characters, 
makes the astounding statement that the 
play is now ended but that the players 
will continue to discuss it for another 
two acts. From here on, the play is lit- 
tle more than a collection of epigra- 
matic statements which culminate in a 
moral sermon emphasizing the need of 
a solution to our every day problems. 
The play at first sight seems to be little 
more than a repetition of some of his 
earlier, more vigorous thoughts but to a 
more discerning listener it is a summary 
of his ideas and shows how they have 
failed at the hands of humanity. 

All those on the program presented 
excellent reports, very well organized 
and most interesting to the scanty audi- 
ence gathered to hear them. The next 
meeting, which will be held the first 
Tuesday after Easter vacation, will be in 
charge of Miss Gloria La Vanture.

bills for their very existence depends 
upon them. He further stated that our 
government has made great headway 
these past few weeks because of the 
breaking away from the old systems and 
going towards the centralization of 

Mr. Heilman, the second negative 
speaker and by far the best speaker of 
the evening, pointed out the ineffective- 
ness of the cabinet system in France, 
Italy and Germany. He said that Ger- 
many has admitted defeat in accepting 
a dictatorship and Italy already has a 
dictator. The system itself has been 
continually breaking down in these Eu- 
ropean countries. 

The same men gave the rebuttal, 
which was interesting. Most of the time 
was spent in breaking down each other's 
puns. The judges were Professor R. E. 
Hartz, supervising principal of the Pal- 
myra schools; Professor J. I. Baugher, 
supervising principal of the Derry 
county schools, and Mr. James H. Stew- 
art, production manager of the Lebanon 
Steel Foundry.

ents is no newcomer in the eyes of col- 
lege audiences, due to his exceptional 
work in "Mr. Pirn Passes By," "Jour-

lead as Captain Stanhope in last year's

Sunday evening was in charge of the 
Freshman "Y" cabinet. Since Spring 
began officially last week, a program re- 
lating to Spring was arranged. "Seeing 
God through Nature" was chosen as the 
theme. The girls taking part in the pro- 
gram endeavored to show how different 
phases of nature show God. Rae Anna 
Reber skilfully played Merkel's "Butter- 
fly." Erma Kieffer led the minds of the 
audience to thoughts of nature.' How 
the stars affect us was shown by Anna 
Francis; the birds, Iva Claire Weirick; 
the flowers, Sara Lupton. With a hymn 
of nature praise the service closed.

Miss Cole Writes 

To Us From Africa 

Moyamba, Sierra Leone 
January 19, 1933. 
Lebanon Valley College, 
Annville, Pa. 
Dear American Friends, 

Thinking you would be interested in 
some of my voyage experiences and first 
impressions of Africa, I am writing you. 
It is difficult to know where to begin for 
every thing has been so novel and inter- 

The ocean trip was fine. We had re- 
ports of hurricane storms but were for- 
tunate to escape all except the very end 
of one, the effects of which we felt for 
about two days. There were six passen- 
gers, a married couple who were enroute 
to the Congo as missionaries, two Afri- 
can natives who had been studying in 
America, and a young lady who was 
married the day we arrived in Freetown 
to the agent of the Barber Line boats. 
Dr. Musselman performed the ceremony 
in the U. B. Church and I had the pri- 
vilege of standing with her at the altar. 

The steamer let down her anchor at 
the Freetown harbor November 22, just 
nineteen days after our departure from 
New York. This time passed rapidly as 
I was occupied in reading the welcome 
steamship letters, books and magazines, 
when I was not with my voyage com- 
panions or enjoying the beauty of the 
water and the heavens. We made two 
stops for refueling, one at St. Vincent 
of Cape Verde Islands and one at Da- 
kar, a French territory on the African 

My greatest thrill came when I stepped 
on the pier at Freetown, the land of my 
new hor ! and work. My bagr;age went 
through customs without any trouble 
and I soon found myself in the Mission 
House where I was made to feel quite at 

The last week in November happens 
to be the closing week for schools in 
Alrica so had the opportunity of seeing 
three graduations — that of Moyamba, 
Rotifunk and Albert Academy. I appre- 
ciated this privilege a great deal for it 
gave me a chance to get a perspective 
on the different schools, to get acquaint- 
ed with the missionaries and their sta- 
tions and to make contacts with the stu- 

After two and one half weeks in the 
rest cottage on Mount Leicester we all 
settled in the mission house in Freetown 
to attend conference which, preceded by 
three days of council, lasted for one 
week. The morning sessions consisted of 
devotions and reports, the afternoons 
were spent in committee meetings and 
the evenings were filled with musical se- 
lections and addresses. Rev. G. M. Gor- 
vie, who recently returned from Amer- 
ica, was the speaker one of the evenings. 

We have not had a rain since a week 
before Christmas and will probably not 
have one until the first of March or 
April, the beginning of a three months 
wet season. The grass is getting brown 
and some trees have shed their leaves 
for a rest but just before the rains the 
gardens will be put out and in a short 
time every thing will be green again. 

The fruits in different sections of the 
country ripen at different times of the 
year. Just now our oranges are very 
small and green but one can buy them 
at the rate of three for an American 
cent. Our bananas and pineapples now 
are beginning to ripen, as are the limes. 
The compound is supplied with other 
tropical fruit trees such as avocado 
pears, mangoes, sour-soups, sweet-soups 
and paws-paws. 

The girls will start coming back for 
the new term tomorrow but we will not 
reopen until Monday, January 23. There 
are many new applications which can 
not be considered because of lack of 
room. r ome of the old students are 
facing the problem of continuing be- 
cause their parents do not believe in giv- 
ing a girl education but nevertheless 
when they graduate and get a job they 
are quite eager for her to provide for

them. However, we have many fine 
Christian families who have a broad out- 
look on the training of the youth and 
give hopes for a promising future in 
the work in Africa. 

It is extremely interesting to note their 
expressions and daily customs. They 
have no special meal times but eat when- 
ever their food or "chop" has finished 
cooking over the little fire which is built 
in the middle of the room or outside on 
the ground. Some cook only once each 
day while others have two meals but nev- 
er three as we do. It would not be a 
meal for them without rice which is 
cooked in the open pot with any thing 
else they care to throw in. The dry rice 
after it is cooked is covered with a stew 
of palm oil and meat seasoned very 
highly. Most any one is welcome to a 
dip-in as they sit around on the ground 
with large spoons. Anything which 
pleases their taste is referred to as 

The girls and women braid their hair 
in many different styles. One popular 
way is to bring the braids made all 
around the head to the center on top 
and to have a circle of "tails" extending 
into the air on the very top of the head. 
Head ties are nearly always worn when 
outside. The girls in school wear simple 
dresses which they are taught to make. 
They like bright colors and large de- 
signs in the cloth. They do beautiful 
embroidery work and hemstitching. They 
do not make pillow cases by pairs but 
each has its individual touch in pattern. 
They would not think of making them 
without embroidered Bible verses or 
axioms such as "God is Love," "Sweet 
Slumber," "Rest in Peace," etc. 

The boys and men keep their hair 
shaved to the head or clipped quite 
short. One seldom sees a gray-haired 
man as they use a black dye. Thus ages 
are very hard to determine. The ordi- 
nary native dress is scarce, although the 
educated classes wear white suits. It is 
not good style for the shirt to be tucked 
in but must flow on the outside. 

Moyamba has a Christian chief who 
is very congenial. He has a dear little 
wife who was purely Mende but is learn- 
ing English. Our pastor does well and 
has a good example of a Christian home. 
He has four little boys and the eldest 
three are named "Saint I," "Saint 2" 
and "Saint 3." We hope they will live 
up to their names. 

Four little babies who lost their 
mothers are brought to the mission twice 
each day for food. One has been named 
after Mrs. Lillian Harford. On Sunday 
morning two old blind men find their 
way here and the school girls lead them 
by means of a stick to church. 

I am looking forward with great an- 
ticipation toward doing my bit in help- 
ing the girls to become true followers of 
Christ, who in turn can go out and be 
living examples for others. 

Faithfully yours,

ty minutes of cross examination. The 
first ten minutes were given to Mr. Zieg-

Mr. Buzzell then used the last' ten min-

The debate closed with a seven min-

Mr. Buzzell speaking for Lebanon Val-

The popularity of the Oregon plan 
of debating seems to be on the increase, 
because of the unusual interest it cre- 
ates among the audience. It is hoped 
that on Lebanon Valley's campus an- 
other chance will be given to enjoy this 
particular type of debating.

Soloists and Luncheon to Feature 
Marathon Recital Next 

At last, the concert by the L. V. C. 
band is to be given along with an or- 
chestra concert. They are to be pre- 
sented Tuesday afternoon and evening; 
the orchestra concert at 4:30 and the 
band concert at 7:30. A plate luncheon 
will be served in the gym between 6 and 

An outstanding feature, a departure 
from regular programs and of very spe- 
cial interest, is a piano concerto, "Con- 
certo in C" by Mozart, by Miss Marga- 
ret Early, with the orchestra. Nothing 
need be said about Miss Early's play- 
ing for all have heard her excellent per- 
formances at the recitals. The program 
will open with two numbers for the 
stringed instruments, and will include 
selections from Mendelssohn's "Mid- 
Summer Night's Dream"; two Spanish 
Dances from Mozkowski and a selection 
from the musical play "Maytime" by 
Romberg. It will close with selections 
from Handel's "Messiah." 

Miss Wood and Miss Eddy are in 
charge of refreshments which will be 
served in the gym between six and sev- 
en. They have made plans for a very 
delicious plate luncheon. 

At 7:30 the band concert will be 
heard. As soloist, Mr. Rutledge will pre- 
sent Mr. Leslie Saunders, a member of 
the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. 
Mr. Saunders will play one of Arthur 
Pryor's most difficult solos. The out- 
standing numbers to be presented are 
selections from Wagner's never-dying 
opera "Tannhauser," also the 'Ballet 
Egyptian" by Luigini; "Al Fresco" by 
Victor Herbert and the ever-famous and 
stirring "American Patrol" by Mee- 
cham. None of these numbers have ever 
been played in chapel. The prices for 
admission are thirty-five cents each for 
the orchestra and band concert, or fifty 
cents for both, or seventy-five cents for 
the two concerts including the 'uncheon. 
Mr. Rirledge is directing both the band 
and the orchestra. 

Dr. Lynch To Speak 
At Educators' Conclave 

Ten counties will be represented at 
the seventh annual convention of the 
southern convention district of the Penn-

listed for Lebanon Friday and Satur- 
day, April 7 and 8. Teachers and prin- 
cipals from Lebanon, Dauphin. Adams, 
Bedford, Cumberland, Franklin, Fulton, 
Lancaster, Perry, and York counties will 
be included. The scene of these activi- 
ties will be the Lebanon High School

dress to be given by Dr. Clyde A. Lynch

Professor Rutledge gave the gen- 
eral student body a glimpse of what 
the conservatory classes are like 
when he conducted the first part of 
the Friday chapel period as a music 
class. After "tuning up" on the 
"Hello" song — this time it was used 
as an Ode to Spring — the main part 
the lesson was attempted. The 
lesson was none other than our 
Alma Mater. The music department 
furnished each student with a neatly 
mimeographed copy of the sons in- 
cluding both the words and the mu- 
sic. The altos, tenors and basses all 
tried their parts separately and after 
each group had become acquainted 
with the score as it is written, the four 
parts were tried together. The result 
was well worth the effort. As a re 
ward for learning our lesson well, 
Professor Rutledge announced that 
whoever wished to keep a copy of 
the Alma Mater was permitted to do 

Tony Jagnesak, '36, in a very 
pleasing way, then played two flute 
solos. His selections were "Ode to a 
Nightingale" and the Intermezzo 
from "Cavalleria Rusticana." Mr. 
Jagnesak played his solos with ease 
and skill. Everyone regretted that he 
did not respond to the hearty ap 
plause for an encore.

Lebanon Valley Debaters Easily 
Win Last Debate of 

l ng. 


ontinued on Page 3, Col umn 3) 

The Oregon plan of debate once more 
proved interesting when used by the 
men's affirmative team of Lebanon Val- 
ley Valley and the negative team of 
Washington and Jefferson, Wednesday 
evening, March 29. The question de- 
bated was that of the cancellation of 
war debts. New was found in 
the topic when treated in this fashion. 
Although the debate was not precisely 
instructive, it was amus ng. 

Mr. Goodman presented the case for 
Lebanon Valley. The negative ride of 
the question was reviewed by Mr. Reese 
of the visiting team. Then Mr. Stout- 
man cross-examined the first speaker for 
Lebanon Valley, after which Mr. Buz- 
zell questioned the speaker fiom Wash- 
ington and Jefferson. After this short 
clash of wits, a five minutes recess was 
announced, during which time Pi of. C. 
R. Gingrich, chairman of the debate, 

Mr. Stoutman summed up the nega- 
tive side of the question, alter which 
Mr. Buzzell reviewed the arguments of 
the affirmative team. There weie no 
judges present at the debate, so the de- 
cision rested with the audience. Their 
decision was almost entirely for the af- 
firmative team. Although a suggestion 
of prejudice may be found in the de- 
cision, it is reasonable to suppose that 
the vote of any disinterested judge 
would have been the same. 

The Lebanon Valley College mixed 
glee club and soloists, with Professor 
Edward P. Rutledge, their director, 
made three more triumphant hits dur- 
ing the last week On Thursday eve- 
ning, they presented theiir program at 
Palmyra where it was received with great 
appreciation. On Friday evening, the 
club traveled to Philadelphia where they 
entertained a larg audience in the 
Fourth Presbyterian Church. Before the 
concert, the church served the singers 
with a delicious dinner. The splendid 
program which the glee club gave was 
performed with an unusual display of 
talented skill and perfection. The audi- 
ence was thrilled with the entire pro- 
gram and the remarks heard af'er the 
concert made even -"tie who was con- 
nected with Lebanon Valley College feel 
proud of this organization, representing 
the college. 

On Tuesday, A jril 4, che glee club 
gave its home concert in Enple Hall. 
The members, singing at their best, gave 
an almost unparalleled exhibition. The 
varied types of numbers rendered by the 
entire chorus were excellently sung, and 
showed results of splendid coaching and 
whole-hearted student cooperation. The 
blend of the exceptionally well balanced 
voices of the club is remarkable. The 
ease with which the director eets the de- 
sired response is a fine mark of the abil- 
ity and support of himself and his 

Miss Ruth Bailey, in her piano solos, 
lived up to her fine reputation as a pian- 
ist of no mean ability. Her selections 
were beautiful, and she played them 
with a striking brilliance. 

Mr. Dale Roth's vocal selections re- 
vealed his pure tone qualities and the 
flexibility of his voice. His numbers 
were sung with feeling and expression 
and his diction was splendid. 

(Continued on Page 3, Column 1) 


During the regular Sunday eve- 
ning service or the "Y. M. C. A.", 
the group was addressed by Dr. A. 
H. Stonecipher who spoke on the 
subject "Know Thyself." In his 
speech he clearly pointed out the 
value of having one's inner self and 
outer self balanced as well as know- 
ing one's entire self. During his 
speech he read several poems and 
clippings which expressed very clear- 
ly his viewpoints. He asked during 
his talk, "If you would stand by the 
road side and watch yourself pass by, 
would you be the person whom you 
would consider for a position, or 
wish to marry, or give a raise in sal- 
ary, etc.?" He told all present to 
spend some time in meditation with 
themselves, and claimed that all great 
men such as Lincoln and others had 
to do this to be the successes they 
were. He also stated that one should 
consider himself or herself as him or 
her. instead of me. 

The devotions of the evening were 
ably handled by Chester Goodman, 
and the program was in charge of 
the devotional chairman, Ray John-

To Conclude Series 


Rally In Closing Minutes Wins 
Contest; Whiting And

"Doc" Williard has just announced 
that all arrangements for the "Kaloze- 
tean Anniversary" are completed. 

"The Last Mile," a fuming satire on 
penal customs and capital punishment, 
will be presented on Friday evening in 
the Conservatory. John Wexley, author 
of the play, has enjoyed unusual suc- 
cess as a modern satirist and "The Last 
Mile" too was a tremendous Broadway 
hit. According to all available infor- 
mation this is the first time the play has 
ever been staged by amateurs. 

On Saturday evening the Kalos will 
motor to LititZ where a dinner will be 
held in the General Sutter hotel. The 
music for the evening will be furnished 
by Harry Johns of Reading. Johns has 
gained himself quite a reputation as an 
orchestra leader, having played many 
engagements in the larger cities and 

That Frosh-Soph bitterness was dem- 
onstrated again last week when the final 
interclass basketball game was played, 
and the Sophs finally emerged victori- 
ous over their first year rivals by a 36- 
3 1 score. 

The game was nip and tuck through- 
out with the score see-sawing from one 
team's favor to that of the other team. 
This game was the final interclass con- 
test due to the victory of the Sophs. If 
the Frosh would have won, a play-off 
for the championship between the Se- 
niors and the Frosh would have been 

The first half ended with nei,ther 
team gaining an advantage, the score 
being 20-20 at the end of this canto. 
The second half was just as closely con- 
tested as the first with the exception of 
the final Soph spurt which gave them 
victory. Reese, of the losers, was high 
scorer, gaining a 17-point total with 
8 double-deckers and a foul. 

The first quarter got off to a slow 
start and almost a minute passed before 
Reese dropped one in for the Frosh. 
However, the second year men were not 
to be outdone and in a few seconds ran 
up a 9-5 lead on the Frosh. The score 
was then tied at 11 -all, when Boran sank 
two more twin-pointers from under the 
basket, sending the Sophs out into the 
lead once more. At this point the Frosh, 
led by Fry and Reese, evened things up 
at 17-all but goals by Konsko and Ka- 
noff sent the Soph score up to 20. How- 
ever, just before the whistle ended the 
first half, Fry and Reese again made 
double-deckers, both from the center of 
the floor, to even matters at 20-20. 

(Continued on Page 3, Column 2) 

Before a large and delighted audience 
last Saturday evening the Clionian 
Literary Society presented a novelty ver- 
sion in modern dress of that joyous 
Elizabethan farce, "The Taming of the 
Shrew." Were the play wholly, or even 
in large part, Shakespeare'?, there would 
be some grounds for those carping cri- 
tics who felt that the modernized ver- 
sion presented by the Clionians was a 
sacrilege and a besmirching of the sa- 
cred name of William Shakespeare. 
When it is known, however, chat the 
Shakesperean version was itself the re- 
sult of the working over and moderniz- 
ing of an earlier play, in which the 
scene was Athens and the proper names 
were Polidor, Ferando, Alphonsus, and 
the like; when it is further realized that 
in rewriting the old play Shakespeare, 
though placing the action in distant 
Italy at an earlier period, used the col- 
loquial English, even the current slang 
of his contemporaries, and that in stag- 
ing the play the Elizabethans made no 
attempt to reproduce Italian costume of 
the period concerned, but used English 
dress of their own time, and finally, that 
all the parts, including the women's 
parts, were taken by men, it becomes ap- 
parent that the Clionian production, 
modernized in language, collegiate in 
dress, and acted entirely by girls was 
quite in the best Shakesperean tradition. 
It is not qf course within the so-called 
"Shakesperean tradition" created by 
the arm-chair critics of the lecture room, 
but is rather within the real tradition 
which Shakespeare himself followed, a 
tradition not stereotyped and fixed, but 
fluid to allow for the free workings of 
the creative imagination. 

This is not denying that there are 
serious questions of taste involved in the 
version which was placed before us Sat- 
urday night. For many of us the ming- 
ling of Shakesperean poetry with camp-

Philo Alumni Speak 

At Regular Session 

Philokosmian Literary Society met in 
regular session Friday night, March 31, 
in Philo Hall. The meeting was opened 
with devotions conducted by Ray John- 
son, after which it became an entirely 
.informal affair. The highlights of the 
evening's program were three im- 
promptu speeches by former Philo 
members. Two of these were given by 
Paul Keene and John Hughes, who 
spent the past week end visiting friends 
on the campus. The third was given by 
Prof. Rawhouser, who also was an ac- 
tive Philo worker in former years. Fol- 
lowing their speeches, the meeting was 
thrown open for general comment, af- 
ter which it was adjourned to met in a 
business session. 

The main business was the election 
of officers for the last term of the school 
year. The following were elected: 

President, Harry Zech; Vice Presi- 
dent, Mitchell Jordan; Corresponding 
Secretary, George Hiltner; Recording 
Secretary, Richard Walborn; Chairman

Some carping critics and cynical rad- 
icals, who define "tradition" as a word 
of nine letters, insist that all events with 
any kind of a traditional background 
should be relegated to the limbo of for- 
gotten activities. Doubtless this is true 
of many of the so-called traditional bul- 
warks. Many sins are covered by the 
halo of "tradition." But here and there 
on the calendar appear items of tradi- 
tional significance which have a posi- 
tive benefit, and of whose importance 
any uL..i*i.'.tion would be absolutely un- 

Such an event is May Day. Always 
one of the high spots on Lebanon Val- 
ley's program, it has assumed an in- 
creasing magnitude as the years have 
passed, until at present it represents an 
outlay of time and expense and a quan- 
tity of planning and labor that are truly 
astounding. The program of dancing 
and pageantry for this year promise to 
compare very favorably with those that 
have gone before. All that is -accessary 
in addition is a body of willing parti- 
cipants, who do not mind spending a 
little rme to perfect an en c -toinment 
that gives pleasure to many and not a 
little credit to Lebanon Valley. 

The girls who take part in .May Day, 
who are the ones who have helped to 
plan it und who probably deiive the 
most enjoyment from it, certainly are 
willing to extend themselves that the 
Spring pageant may be a success. But 
there always has been a murmur of dis- 
content among the necessary male parti- 
cipants, which has litde, if any, justi- 
fication. The men can do t : ieir part, 
and derive an appreciable amount of 
pleasure, by appearing cheerful'/. ON 
TIME, for the practices. It is an honor 
to participate in the May Day program, 
an honor which appears in the year 
books under the participants' names. 
So, during this next month, let the men 
do their little part toward making one 
of Lebanon Valley's good ' traditions" 
a success. 

Failure is a matter of self-conceit. 
Men don't work hard because, in their 
self-conceit, they think they are so clev- 
er that they'll succeed without working 
hard. Most men believe that they'll 
wake up some day and find themselves 
rich and famous — and, eventually, they 
"wake up." — T. A. Edison. 

Student prayer meeting again was 
held last Wednesday evening in Philo 
Hall. This was the first of the weekly 
prayer meetings to be held under the 
direction of the new chairmen, Cathe- 
rine Wagner, and Melvin Hitz, who 
just recently assumed their positions. 

An interesting program was presented 
at this first meeting, the feature of 
which was an address by Paul Emen- 
heiser. Mr. Emenheiser spoke on the 
subject of "Certainty," basins his talk 
on William Allen Brown's book, "Path- 
ways to Certainty." In a brief digest of 
the author's thought, the speaker pre- 
sented as the central idea this state- 
ment: "I know in whom I have be- 
lieved." Certainly in every phase of life 
certainty is necessary in order to have 
inner calm and to be released from fear. 
Mortals have a measurable amount of 
certainty in the present confusion of 
thought, and for that should be com- 
mended. However, certainty takes on a 
different aspect than that of our fore- 
fathers, especially in the strength of be- 
lief in Satan and his allies. In the final 
analysis one cannot disregard the influ- 
ence of certainty in his external and in- 
ternal affairs. 

The special music of the program was 
furnished by J. Allan Ranck and Clyde 
Mentzer, who sang a duet arrangement 
of "Rock of Ages." Herbert Bowers 
read the scripture lesson and offered the 
prayer. At the close of the service 
everybody joined in repeating the 
Lord's prayer. 



The third Lenten service was held in 
the college chapel last Friday morning, 
at which Mr. Harry Zech was the speak- 
er. Mr. Zech addressed the group with 
a very inspiring and instructive talk, 
after reading the scripture lesson. 

The program was also made quite in- 
teresting by an organ prelude by Miss 
Catherine Deisher, and a vocal solo by 
Miss Charlotte Stabley. Mr. Allen Stef- 
fy, the program chairman of the Y. M. 
C. A., again was in charge of the sun- 
rise service. 


Dr. Lynch has been asked to attend 
churches in several of the nearby towns 
during Holy Week. On April 9, Palm 
Sunday, he will be speaker at both the 
morning and, evening services of th 
Grace United Brethren Church at Al- 
lentown. These services are in com- 
memoration of the thirty-third anniver- 
sary of the church's founding. 

On Wednesday evening, he will give 
a Lenten sermon at Oberlin. On Thurs- 
day he will speak at a similar meeting 
in the Penbrook United Brethren 

Good Friday, Dr. Lynch will preach 
at the Union Lenten service from 12:05 
to 12:50. This noon worship period is 
planned by the Lebanon Ministerium. 
At three o'clock the same day, he will 
conduct the Lebanon Salem United 
Brethren service. 

On Saturday, the Hershey Church 
has asked him to speak at its last pre- 
Easter worship. 


Rather surprising was the statement 
of Mrs. Roosevelt, that beer would be 
served in the White House as scon as 
it is legalized. It is generally known 
that the Roosevelts favored the leturn 
of beer, but it was unexpected ihat they 
rhould decide to bring it to the White 
House. Mrs. Roosevdt said that she 
will not drink it, but it will be served to 
any guest asking for it. Anyway, they 
won't have to wait very lonj. 

Jimmy Walker has gained the head- 
lines once again. The reason this time 
was the visit he and Bett/ Cotnv.ton, his 
actress friend, paid to City Hall at 
Cannes, France, to get Information 
about regulations of the French mar- 
riage law. Walker is silent abojtt his 
wedding plans, and when asked about a 
.rumor that he and Miss Compton al- 
ready were married, he replied, 'Wtie.i 
I get married I'll let you know.' 


The Federal Government operated in 
March with the remarkably small deficit 
of $1,334,049. That sounds like a lot 
of money, but not when compared with 
the deficit of $104,266,216 in 1932. The 
small deficit would have been almost 
wiped out if an extension on the first 
quarter's income taxes had not been 
granted. This financial showing was re- 
ceived as a wholesome tonic because it 
represented a turn in the financial 
rtatus of the government even before 
President Roosevelt's economy plans had 
been made operative. 

Latest reports of the muddled condi- 
tion of affairs in Germany show that 
President Hindenburg has put a curb 
on the boycott which Hitler's supporters 
have undertaken against the Jews. That 
removes part of the tension, at least. 
The Americans are glad to note that 
not every German is as radical az Hitler 
and his Nazi supporters. Hinoenburg 
should be commended for having forced 
Hitler to suspend his drive on the Jews 
to a single day, even though the Nazis 
may resume their attack in other ways. 

Robert Fechner of Massachusetts, a 
union labor leader, has been selected by 
President Roosevelt to direct the forest 
conservation program and the employ- 
ment of 250,000 men. Fechne:- will co- 
ordinate function of the War, Agricul- 
ordinance functions of the War, Agri- 
cultural, Interior, and Labor departments 
in getting this unemployed movement 
under way by Friday, the first day for 
registrations. The first group of recruits 
will undergo an immediate period of 
training and will be at work by April 15. 

Followers of aviation were surprised 
within the past week by two events, one 
a disaster, and the other a triumph. 
More prominent was the disaster of the 
Akron, giant dirigible of the U. S. Navy.- 
The Akron was caught in a thunder- 
storm on Monday evening over the 
ocean, and crashed soon afterwards into 
the sea. 

Over in India, two airplanes flew over 
the summit of Mt. Everest, highest peak 
in the world, for the first time in his- 
tory. The feat was accomplished by 
Marquis of Clydesdale, the leader of the 
expedition, and his associates, including 
a photographer. He succeeded in taking 
a number of pictures which are intend- 
ed as authentic proof of the conquest 
of the 29,141 foot mountain. 

Pennsylvania's forest firemen have re- 
turned to duty this week. Towermen 
were the first to go on duty to provide 
against outbreaks during the spring sea- 
son. Now the State has sent 2500 trained 
crews of fire-fighters into the woods to 
protect the Keystone forests. They will 
guard against the usual large number 
of outbreaks in the spring. 

On Friday night, Miss Marion Kruger 
read her farewell address to Delphian. 
She then swore Miss Mildred Christian- 
sen into office. The other Delphians 
who took office are: Miss Ruth Garner, 
Vice President; Miss Arline Heckrote, 
critic; Miss Catherine Wa 3 ner, chap- 
lain; Miss Verna Grissinger, Recording 
Secretary; Miss Ann Butterwick, Corre- 
sponding Secretary; Miss Charlotte 
Stabley, Pianist; Miss Dorothy Jackson, 
Treasurer, and Misses Sarah Lupton 
and Jean Bitting, Wardens. Miss Chris- 
tiansen appointed Miss Gem Gemmill, 
Miss Mary March, Miss Flo Grimm and 
Miss Ruth Garner to the Judiciary Com- 
mittee. She also presented her plans 
for the remainder of the semester. 

Student Body Picks 
Most Popular Pair 


Seniors To Appear In 1934 Quit- 
tapahilla With Other 

The "Quittapahilla" conducted a 
popularity contest during chapel period 
on March 28. The different political 
factions did not have time to organize 
their forces, so we can assure the stu- 
dent body that the contest was up and 
above board. 

The May Queen was elected a few 
weeks ago by popular vote. This honor 
was bestowed on the most beautiful girl, 
and, so that all glory would not grace 
one person, this election was held to de- 
termine who, in the minds of the stu- 
dents, was the most popular senior wom- 
an and the most popular seniot man. 

Beauty, however, was not the domi- 
nant requisite for fhe contest its. Par- 
ticipation in extra-curricular activities, 
personality, and good fe'lov/ship — 
these, more than any other requirements, 
carried weight in this contest. 

The results will not be disclo.«"id unti : 
the "Quittie" is publ'shed. A.s r>ei usu 
al, Dame Rumor has found *nany will- 
ing tongues to carry h<v false reports 
but these results have fcwr k»p: secret 
The annual publication is requiring 
much cime of the staff, and from hear- 
say, th.s year's book will compare wi;h 
all others. But — until it makes its ap- 
pearance, nothing more will be heard of 
the popularity contest. 


We have several pointed needles on 
hand today just aching to jab someone. 
The first is for the man who lit up a 
cigarette in the balcony at the Clio per- 
formance Saturday ni^jht. It ce*-tninly 
was out of order. Never before has such 
a thing happened. But the occurrence 
can easily be accounted for. The gentle- 
man probably heard that it was a bur- 
lesque performance of the "Tamins of 
the Shrew" and immediately fell into 
tne habit of a Minsky patron. 

The second needle goes for a certain 
species of dormitory dweller whose con- 
scientious economy runs away with their 
better judgment. The reference is to the 
people who insist on putting lights out 
in the hallways and drinking niches. To 
put out one's room lights when they are 
not in use is courteous, correct and eco- 
nomical. To put out the hall lights is 
dangerous, incorrect, and asinine. 

Now the third. We were fortunate 
enough to get a look at a few Senior 
honor sheets. One boy had the following 
written on his: 

College: I don't belong to any clubs, 
I'm not a party man, 
To me they are so many dubs 
Who spread soft soap as best 
they can. 

Class: By myself. (Ed. Note: Stay 

there) . 
Society: Just a gigolo. 
And they stoke fires! 

We may live without books, — what is 
knowledge but grieving? 

We may live without hope — what is hope 
but deceiving? 

We may live without love — what is pas- 
sion but pining? 

But where is the man who can live with- 
out dining?' — Owen Meredith. 

Jim Fridy and Bill Prescott get this 
species of dormitory dweller whose con- 
have it that Jimmie and Willie are going 
back to childhood days with a whiz- 
bang. Jim stands in the corner and 
hides his eyes while Willie hides himself 
and vice-versa. Yes, it is the old-fash- 
ioned game of hide-and-seek. Now then, 
all together, boys: "The farmer in the 
dell, the farmer in the dell, tra la, la, la 
la, la, the farmer in the dell." 

Ed Umberger insists that he is neve- 
pedantic. But we think he is. At any 
rate, take the signs he leaves for his 
roommates. Here's one of them: 
. ; i.hburn, dear! 

I entreat you, use force if necessary 
to arouse me from my slumbers at 6:30. 
Enlist Peiffer's aid if I should prove ob- 
durate. Thank you. 



Have you seen the cocoanut in the 
offire? Well, it was sent to all of us 
so go to see it if you haven't done 
so. Really, it doesn't look at all like 
an A. 6C P. cocoanut. It's a funny 
pear-shaped thing without any fuzzy 
brown hairs. The shell is rather gray- 
ish and smooth with a little bit of 
shine on it. 

Dr. Wagner sent us this extraordi- 
nary gift from way down South 
where cocoanuts grow, that is, Mi- 
ami, Fla. It bears the inscription: 
A nut 
to a Nut 
from a Nut 
This includes everybody. 
The Wagners are enjoying the 
warm luxurious ocean and sun baths 
in Miami. Prof, is recuperating rap- 
idly, and he and his family are ex- 
pected home in a few weeks. 

D'd you ever stop to figure out how 
many brands of cigarettes you've smoked 
in your time? We did the other night 
and the results were rather startling. 
Camel, Chesterfield, Piedmont, Luckies, 
Sweet Caporal, Wings, Old Gold, Sun- 
shine, Target, Helmar, Marlborough, 
Raleighs, Spuds, Fatimas, Tareytons, 
Murads, Lord Salisbury, Menthorettes, 
Meccas, Melachrinos, John Paul Jones, 
Pall Mall, Violets. And this list excludes 
some number of Russian and Italian 
importations we've tasted. But our fa- 
vorite is still — oops, no cigarette ads. 

We nominate for the Hall of Fame: 
Leisey, Withelder, and Gillan for act- 
ing like males in Clio play. Especially 
Lou for the way she stuffed her hands 
in her pockets and swaggered. Krum- 
biegel for his nerve in wearing knickers. 
Babe Earley for having more clothes on 
the stage Saturday night than any other 
man. April weather — showers or no, it's 
still fine. 

We nominate for oblivion: Bromo 
Seltzer. Ruth. Committee;. Purple suits 
and green socks. 


On Thursday, March 30, a meeting 
of the Kalozetean Literary Society was

Yesterday I saw three men in bright 

football uniforms go charging to- 

^rds the stadium. What, I asked my 

has Coach Mylin issued a call for 

S °ring football practice? Being in 

SPf t of news, I followed them, think - 

^ to gain some tins on next year's 

mg ~. But alas! It was only Furlong, 
team- » ... , 

Light, and Lantz having pictures taken 

f or the "Quittie." 

Speaking of the "Quittie," folks, wc 
hear that Coach Mylin has something in 
store for the readers of the 1934 "Quit- 
■ e " However, due to the pleadings of 
"Chef" Umber^er, who just walked in 
and caught me writing this, I will no: 
be able to divulge this scoop to you un- 
til a later date. 

It seems as if the old ball team is all 
washed up, having had only about four 
practice sessions as yet. Old Dame Na- 
ture certainly is playing havoc with 
those L. V. C. tossers. Nevertheless, 
Captain George Wood and his stickmen 
are out there, weather permitting, bat- 
ting that "ole pill" around. 

Gregory and His Band to Play for Junior Prom 

Although very little practice has been 
garnered, the team will cross bats with 
the "Saints" of Emmitsburg on Saturday 
at Emittsburg. This is a non-league 
game, as Mt. St. Mary's is one of the 
three teams on the schedule of L. V. C. 
this year which are not in the Eastern 
Penna. Baseball League. 

The starting lineup for this game has 
not been announced as yet, inasmuch 
as there are many vacant positions from 
last year's team to be filled. However, 
Bill Smith, a Sophomore and veteran 
of last season, will probably set the 
mound assignment with Captain Gsorge 
Wood as relief hurler. 

The Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate 
Baseball league lost one of its members 
last we©k,-*vhen Franklin and Marshall 
definitely decided to cancel all spring 
sports. This means that the Lebanon 
Valley diamondsmen have an open date 
on their schedule as they were to play 
the Nevonians once in league competi- 
tion. This game was scheduled for Wed- 
nesday, May 3, at Lancaster. 

Albright, our traditional rivals, have 
a veteran team to place on the diamond 
this season. According to early prac- 
tices they will present one of the strong- 
est teams in the league, and one of the 
strongest Albright diamond aggregations 
in years at the Reading institution. 

Drexel, our second league opponent, 
Just returned from their tenth annual 
southern trip. The trip this year was 
one of the most disastrous in years, the 
Dragons losing all five games played, 
three games being rained out on the 
e ight-game schedule. Coach Halas' chief 
trouble seems to be in finding a capable 
Pitcher. Lebanon Valley crosses bats 
with the Dragons in Philadelphia on 
Saturday, April 29. 



Stonecipher — "What do you consider 
the greatest accomplishment of the an- 
cient Romans?" 

Frances Keiser — "Speaking Latin." 

"See if you can laugh that off, Don- 
ald (Helen to you)," said Mrs. Sandt as 
she wired a button on his vest. 

Daugherty — "How did you get into 
this terrible state?" 

Sheaffer — "They gave me twenty-four 
hours to get out of the last one." 

McFaul- — -"Here, waiter, take this 
chicken away; it's as tough as a paving 

Beaver — "Maybe it's a Plymouth 


The Junior class was rather skeptical 
about the advisability of holding a 
prom. However, when spring time and 
prom time crept onto the campus the 
Juniors unanimously decided to adhere 
to this delightful tradition. The Junior 
Prom as usual will be held at the Her- 
shey ballroom, the date decided on be- 
ing April 28. 

Mr. McFaul, chairman of the place 
committee, has announced that he has 
completed negotiations with the Hershey 
Park managers and the prom will be 
the first affair held in the newly-deco- 
rated hall. 

The music will be furnished by Dan 
Gregory and his nationally famous ra- 
dio-recording orchestra. Mr. Klitch ex- 
perienced some trouble in securing Gre- 
gory due to his unusual popularity. 
Giegory and his twelve men have re- 
cently completed contracts at the Million 
Dollar Pier in Atlantic City, at Penn 
State, Lehigh, F. dC M. and a score of 
other collegiate affairs. On April 29, 
the night after the Junior prom, he will 
play at the University of Virginia prom. 

"Marg" Kohler and "Marg" Long3- 
necker, committee chairmen, suggested 
that the dance should be a semi-formal 

spring affair. The class received the 
suggestion kindly and further — lifted 
the ban on non-campus participators by 
deciding the dance shall be an invita- 
tion affair. 


The prom leader as yet has not been 
elected by the entire student body, al- 
though the classes have chosen their 
nominees. The four Junior boys se- 
lected by the classes will be nominees 
for the election in chapel when the stu- 
dent body will select the prom-leader. 
The election will be kept secret until 
prom night, however, and then the 
chosen society lion will step to the front 
and with his partner lead the colorful 
promenade. A special committee has 
been selected to rewrite the college Alma 
Mater and adapt it to an orchestration 
which will be played for the promenade. 

Committees are attempting to provide 
transportation from Annviile to Her- 
shey and according to latest reports are 
succeeding well. Thus the entire expense 
for the evening will not exceed #2.50 a 
couple or a real dance at depression 
prices. Tickets will be placed on sale 
sometime after the Easter vacation and 
may be secured for you and your guests 
from almost any Junior. 

The following Juniors, Book, Kreider, 
Kohler, Longenecker, Klitch, McFaul, 
Essick, Mowrey, Ranck, and Grissinger, 
are acting as committee chairmen and 
are desirous of making the coming 
event the biggest success of any dance 
ever staged by L. V. C. students. 

Roth — "Say, Todd, why did the head- 
waiter fire you yesterday?" 

Todd — "Well, a headwaiter is one 
who stands around and watches others 

Roth — "What's that got to do with 

Todd — "Why, he got jealous of me 
People thought I was the headwaiter."

Frosh got started. However, field goals 
by Kowalewski, Reese, and two by Fry

Kanoff dropped one through the cords

Connecticut, who will speak on "School 
Dull and Life Bright." Miss Mary Gil-

In an educational convention it is 
most fitting to resort to some social fea- 
tures beyond the benefits derived from 
the meetings themselves. Instead of the 
extra-class activities we hear so much 
about in our education courses, these 
teachers will be furnished with some ex- 
tra-conventional activities (conventional 
in the sense of a district convention). 
The Lebanon High School glee clubs 
and band will be called upon to parti- 
cipate in these sessions. The schedule 
also includes an informal reception, a 
buffet luncheon, and dance.

Miss Martha Elser more than fulfilled 
the expectations of even the most hope- 
ful with her excellent violin numbers. 
Her full round tones, her fineness of 
technique, and her exact intonation held 
the audience to the very end.

us slanj, of Elizabethan convention with 
references to motorcycles, movies, and 
hot dogs, of "thees" and "thous" with 
blaziers and golf socks presented a series 
of shocks, which, while heightening the 
humorous effect at the same time struck 
jarringly into that golden hare of un- 
reality so marked in all the Shakesper- 
ean romances. Undoubtedly th?, produ- 
cers were justified in seeking to add to 
the humor of the play. Much of what 
was funny to aa Elizabethan audience 
is lost on a modern audience who would 
never know unless told that in the tam- 
ing of the shrew, Petruchto v.:is using 
the recognized technique errp oyed in 
the taming of falcons for hunting. The 
central farce element in tL-j play, there- 
fore, is lost to the modern audience. 
Many of the comic touches added by 
the Clionians were delicious Some of 
the best things were unintentional, as 
the two toasted marsh*nallows which 
served S?>rah Hoilman as moustaches. 
The motorcycle scene was not so good 
a., might have been, perhaps because 
Rose Dieter was too docile cad too care- 
ful of Ler gown in mounting. There 
were too many servants in the way, be- 

Perhaps the only really valid criti- 
cism of the Clionian modernizing of 
the play is that they didn't go far 
enough. They changed the place : am. j s 
to AnnviUe, Lebanon, Cleonn, Hum- 
melstown; why shouldn't they have 
changed the- personal names to Meyer, 
Yiengst, Kreider, Reinbold, crc ? They 
introduced campus slang, but why not 
get rid of all obsolete terms; rewrite the 
play entirely in the vernacular? Final- 
ly, were the play rewritten by a modern 
Shakespeare, it would be no longer a 
piece for entertainment merely, but 
would become a Problem Play, and Kath- 
arina would be Modern Woman, a mili- 
tant feminist, in revolt against the con- 
ventions which oppress her sex. She 
would have been tamed perhaps in the 
end, but in revolting she weald raise 
questions which, according to the mode, 
would m-ke of the play a Sociological 
Document. There is of course nothing 
of this in Shakespeare, who had no so- 
ciological notions at all (for proof vide 
his Troilus and Cressida), and the Clio 
girls used the play as they round it: 
pure entertainment. One cannot even 
credit them with seeking to point the 
moral to their collegiate brothers that 
however self-willed and individualistic 
a girl may be before marriage, she will, 
under the right treatment, become prop- 
erly subservient and domesticated after 

The chief objection to the play as 
sheer amusement is that there was too 
much ?f it. In r.pite of the fact that 
the later scenes were very much better 
both intrinsically and as they were act- 
ed than the earlier scenes, tr c audience 
was weary, stuffed and over-stuifed with 
these frivolous bon-bons at lecst a half 
an hour before the final curtnin. The 
Induction, deh'ghtful as it is, could have 
been omitted; and the final scene dis- 
posing of Sly at the end is not even in 
Shakespeare, though it was part of the 
old play which Shakespeare rewrote. 

To name individually all the players 
who merited praise would be to make a 
long list. Perhaps the most notable 
thing about the play was the large num- 
ber of really competent actors on the 
boards. When it is further considered 
that many of these were freshmen or 
sophomores appearing on the L. V. C. 
stage for the first time, there is reason 
to hope for other fine things to come. 

The leading role, taken by Mae Fauth, 
called for swagger and punch, jaunty 
good humor, and a domineering mascu- 
linity difficult for a woman to achieve. 
Yet Miss Fauth never failed in holding 
the center of attention from the moment 
of her entrance in a scene until her exit. 
She lacked perhaps the dash and gusto 
of a Douglas Fairbanks, but she brought 
to the part a subtlety and sense of pur-

pose which her movie rival, with his 
monkey-acrobatics, .could not achieve. 
Her greatest weakness was her voice, 
which — and this criticism applies to 
others of the cast — in moments of ex- 
citement became shrill and quite un- 
manish. Rose Dieter's impersonation of 
Katharina was at times brilliant, almost 
inspired. But her work was spotty. Par- 
ticularly in her moments of mad raving 
I did not feel that she sufficiently iden- 
tified herseif with her part. At the mo- 
ments of greatest intensity I could still 
feel, "There is Rose Dieter thoroughly 
enjoying herself as only Rose Dieter 
can." But Miss Dieter has ability, and 
with more maturity, more emotional 
depth, this weakness will disappear. 

Next to the two I have named, I 
think the most brilliant acting was done 
by those airy sprites, Helen Eddy and 
Mildred Nye. The part they had was 
traditional and yet ever young, extend- 
ing from the pert page of Piautus and 
Terence down to P. G. Wodehouse's 
resourceful butler, Jeeves; but I dare 
say, never was the part h ind led on an 
amateur stage with more abandon, more 
of the Peter Pan joyousness. I should 
dearly like to see them ar Viola and 
Feste in Twelfth Night. 

Louise Gillan, as the impressionable 
and romantic youth Lucentio, carried 
her part well, though there was not great 
opportunity for solo work. As Bianca, 
Irene Heiser gave us the right propor- 
tions of shy modesty and coy flirtatious- 
ness. Kathryn Leisey handled an impor- 
tant part with ease and competence. 
One must not fail to mention Kathryn 
McAdam and her able assistants, Miriam 
Book and Rae Anna ReLer, for their 
part in making the Induction so charm- 
ing. Betty Schaak, both in the Induc- 
tion, and in the April fool joke later, 
brought forth much laughcer 

After naming these, one has by no 
means exhausted the list of notables. 
There was Gladys Withelder as the self- 
important Gremio; Sarah Heilman, who 
played Hortensio with -a restrained droll- 
ery that was a show all by itself; there 
was Helen Earnest — but the list is quite 
too long to go on. The person who de- 
serves credit more than any one else, 
perhaps, for the success of all this, is 
Marion May. The play was not of uni- 
form quality throughout, the players 
did not know their lines as well as they 
should have, and often the enunciation 
was not clear, so that we lost the words; 
but taken all in all, the play war an am- 
bitious piece that succeeded hatter than 
many less ambitious things I have seen 
done by professionals. To Miss May 
and the Clio girls our congratulations.

The nationalist movement in Ger- 
many is as much a part of the disarma- 
ment problem as the armaments them- 
selves. No nation is likely to disarm if 
there is any cause for fear that it may 
be attacked when defenseless. To dis- 
arm in the face of the menace of war is 
criminal folly; disarmament is justified 
only in proportion as the policies and 
the institutions of peace supplant those 
of war. Seen in this light, disarmament 
is the parallel in the field of politics to 
debt adjustment in the field of credit; 
for behind them both lies the inexorable 
fact that there must be confidence in the 
character and calculability in the poli- 
cies of nations. 

Settlement of the war debt problem, 
therefore, carries us not only into the 
problem of disarmament but beyond it 
to an analysis of the conditions across 
the Rhine and across the Vistula. The 
outstanding obstacle to the stabilization 
of Europe and the consequent strength- 
ening of its credit system lies in the fact 
that Germany seems to be giving up 
hope that the redress of its grievances 
can be secured by the existing structure 
of peace which centers at Geneva. 

Young Germany, at least, voices its 
discontent by the threat of force. It is 
sheer blindness not to connect the poli- 
tical and moral problems presented by 
resurgent Germany, intent upon recov- 
ering its place in the sun, with that 
other problem, seemingly remote, of the 
settlement of war debts at Washington; 
just as the war-debt problem bears di- 
rectly upon the question of tariffs. Tar- 
iffs, in Europe, at least, have been more 
the expression of militant national poli- 
tics than of the economic needs of the 
peoples concerned. They have been the 
expression in terms of economics of a 
peace-time war. The only hope of get- 
ting rid of them is to change the psy- 
chology behind them. 

The settlement of the war debt ques- 
tion should involve a revision of these 
barriers to trade, if, as we have stated 
above, the only economic interest that 
America can have in granting the deb- 
tors better terms is the establishment of 
normal economic conditions in Europe 
to enable it to outride the storm of ad- 
versity with which our Ship of State is 
battling today.

The payment of debt's is only the pass- 
ing of the coin. It does not in itself 
secure the recovery of international cred- 
it. Either to wipe the slate clean or to 
extract the last penny from the debtor 
would not by itself bring back a healthy 
condition to a world of business whose 
normal balances of trade are far great- 
er than the immediate payments in- 
volved in the liquidation of the war. The 
only hope for re-establishing credit is to 
with political as well as economic credit, 
deal with credit, and that means dealing 
for these two cannot be dissociated 

So far we as well as Europe have nev- 
er dealt with the problems on such fun- 
damental terms. The time has come to 
do so. Let there be an armistice in the 
war debt controversy and a new peace 
conference, not to tear down the struc- 
ture of peace created by the last one, 
but to make it workable by applying the 
experience of the last twelve years. The 
League of Nations must be strengthened, 
not weakened, for if it were to disappear 
its place would be taken by secret alli- 
ances, with war as an absolutely inevi- 
table consequence. It should be strength- 
ened, however, in ways that would per- 
mit the helpful functioning of the 
United States without involving us in 
quarrels in which we have no part. 

The unity of civilization does not call 
for uniformity in the obligations of na- 
tions to each other, as the history of the 
post-war years has shown. This situa- 
tion, with variety as the key to unity, is 
one in which America has had unique 
experience in the structure and func- 
tioning of a federal State. In the world 
community of nations there should be 
varying degrees of responsibility, more 
than is provided for in the existing 
Covenant of the League of Nations. 

The members of the League, there- 
fore, need to reconsider their relation to 
it so as to make it really capable of deal- 
ing with the problems of the Polish Cor- 
ridor or minorities or disarmament. 
Above all the United States needs, more 
than any other nation, to readjust its 
relationship with the League. 

Tha this can be done is no mere day- 
dream or wishful thinking has been 
clearly shown by the government of M. 
Herriot. In giving a new and more prac- 
tical turn to the Briand plan for a Fed- 
eration of Europe, asking of America 
no positive aid in policing Europe, but

expecting of it only that it will not ma L e 
itself the accomplice of the nation that 
goes to war in violation of the Kellogg 
Pact, the government of France was 
obviously trying to lay the basis not only 
of disarmament, but of the whole inter, 
national structure in terms so adjustable 
as to meet American conditions. 

Unfortunately, a project prepared as 
a basis of discussion was treated in our 
press as though it were France's last 
word. It was not necessarily so intend- 
ed, and certainly need not have been so 
treated. Absorbed in our own affairs 
and narrowly concentrating on the arith. 
metic of debts and armaments, we have 
failed so far to see that the opportunity 
has at last arrived for re-establishing not 
only credit, but America's place in the 
great task of international cooperation 
at the League of Nations. 


Friendly Hour in North Hall parlor 
Sunday evening, was opened by Rae 
Anna Reber who played the familiar 
"Largo" by Handel as a piano prelude. 
The theme of the program was "Jesus' 
Ideals of living." Louise Gillan con- 
ducted the meeting. Various scripture 
selections were read by Frances Keiser, 
Margaret Longenecker, Ruth Coble, 
Mildred Christiansen, and Margaret 
Weaver. Jane Shellenberger, Dorothy 
Jackson, and Anne Matula gave senti- 
ments of famous modern people con- 
cerning high ideals of living. 

Lastly, the thought was given that not 
only is it necessary for us to have these 
ideals but that we must share them. 
The hymn "In Him There Is No East 
Nor West" and "How Firm A Founda- 
tion" were used. The meeting was closed 
by repeating the mispah. 

Drexel, one of our league opponents 
for the coming season, is on a southern

day by an 8-7 score.

Plans For Greater 
Philo Anniversary 
Nearly Completed 


"She Stoops to Conquer" To Be 
Followed By Spring 

Plans are rapidly nearing completion 
for the observance of the sixty-sixth an- 
niversary of the Philokosmian Literary 
Society. The event will be celebrated 
over the week-end of May Day, with the 
annual play on Friday evening, and a 
dance the following night. The several 
committees have been working diligent- 
ly under the direction of Samuel Ul- 
rich, anniversary president, and present 
indications practically assure the success 
of the affair. 

The cast of "She Stoops to Conquer," 
a comedy by Oliver Goldsmith, which 
will be given May 5, has been practicing 
steadily the past few weeks, and is now 
adding all the necessary finishing touch- 
es to the production. The play itself 
ibounds in comedy from beginning to 
<>nd, and is certain to provide the audi- 
ence with an evening of amusing and 
delightful entertainment. It does not 
lack romance either, for in the end two 
couples are happily united. A series of 
complications might be expected to oc- 
cur whenever they concern the affairs 
of four lovers, and the interference of 
fond parents and a foolish son. And 
that is exactly what happens in "She 
Stoops to Conquer." Plans are being 
made for the usual reception and dance 
in the gymnasium at the conclusion of 
the play. 

Of equal importance and interest to 
the members of Philo will be the dance 
which will be held Saturday night, May 
6, at the Hotel Weimer ballroom in 
Lebanon. This will be the society's first 
nnual spring formal, and from all in- 
dications it will be quite an elaborate af- 
fair. The committee in charge has se- 
cured Al Hollander and his orchestra 
from York Hollander's orchestra comes 
y ery highly recommended, for just re- 
cently he and Herm Richards combined 
their orchestras. Herm Richards will be 
remembered for his fine music at the 
Soph Hop, December of 1931. As a 
special feature, Hollander will bring 
a ong a "blues" singer, who accompa- 
nies the orchestra to all special engage-

College Orchestra 
And Band Make Hit 


Luncheon Served In Gym Between 
Concerts — Musicians Display 
Great Skill 

r yn Mowrey. 

Lebanon Valley College's first music 
festival presented by the band and or- 
chestra was held the day before school 
closed for spring vacation. At four 
thirty in the afternoon, the orchestra 
under the direction of Professor Ed- 
ward P. Rutledge, gave a concert in 
Engle Hall. Between six and seven 
o'clock, a supper was served in the 
alumni gym to a number of guests. At 
seven thirty o'clock the band concert 
started, Professor Rutledge again direct- 

The afternoon program opened with 
a group of two numbers, "Prelude in 
C" by Bach and "Old French Gavotte" 
by Campra, played by a string orches- 
tra. Both numbers displayed profes- 
sional skill on the parts of the players 
and produced a beautiful blend of tone. 

A unique feature on the program was 
the Concertino in C by Mozart, with 
Miss Margaret Early, piano soloist, ac- 
companied by a chamber orchestra, se- 
lected from the personnel of the regular 
orchestra. Miss Early played the de- 
lightful concertino in a manner which 
showed her splendid mastery of a piano 
keyboard while the accompanying or- 
chestra added much to the charm of the 

The four offerings of the full orches- 
tra were The Wedding March by Men- 
delssohn, two Spanish dances of Mosz- 
kowsky, "Maytime" by Romberg, and a 
selection from Handel's "Messiah." The 
finely balanced orchestra played these 
difficult numbers in true symphonic 

"Stars and Stripes Forever," by the 
march king, Sousa, was the band's first 
number on the evening program. A se- 
lection from Wagner's "Tannhauser" 
followed, and then the Boston Com- 
mandery March by Carter was played. 

The next number was "Thoughts of 
Love" by Pryon, with Mr. Leslie Saun- 
ders, trombone soloist. Mr. Saunders 
has established an outstanding reputa- 
tion as a trombonist, both here and off 
the campus. His solo on this program, 
in which he was accompanied by the 
modulated entire band, certainly did

Thames Williamson 
Gives Enlivening 
Literary Lecture 


Author of "Hunky" Says That 
Good Fiction Cannot 
Be Popular 

Thames Williamson, a well known 
American author, spoke to the student 
body on Monday morning during chapel 
period. He discussed the writing pro- 
fession in its entirety. Dr. Wallace gave 
him a very fitting introduction and 
apologized for the fact that Mr. Wil- 
liamson had been a college professor 
and worse than that, a professor of eco- 
nomics, "but this has not left a perma- 
nent stain," said Dr. Wallace. 

Mr. Williamson has traveled exten- 
sively and has engaged in various fields 
of work. His most popular novel is 
"Hunky" which recently was chosen 
unanimously as the Book of the Month. 
One of his books, "Sad Indian," is be- 
ing made into a movie with Ramon No- 
varro taking the leading role. He has 
written text-books, books of adventure, 
boys' stories and novels. 

In speaking of the writing profession, 
Mr. Williamson said that one must 
learn to write but that there is no place 
where one can learn. He spoke of our

Faculty Recital In 
Engle Hall Tonight 


Mrs. Bender, Mr. Campbell, and 
Mr. Crawford to Appear 
In Concert 

The first regularly scheduled faculty 
spring concert will be held this evening 
at eight o'clock, when three members of 
the Conservatory faculty will appear in 
Engle hall. The artists of the evening 
will be Ruth Engle Bender, pianist; Por- 
ter Campbell, organist, and Alexander 
Crawford, bass. 

Mrs. Bender, Mr. Crawford, and Mr. 
Campbell are well known to the student 
body by reason of their appearances in 
chapel and in previous recitals. The 
concert this evening promises to be a 
new revelation of the artistic and tech- 
nical capabilities of the three perform- 
ers, each of whom is professor in the 
chosen musical field in the Conserva- 
tory of Music. 

An unusual feature of the recital will 
be three groups of numbers played to- 
gether by Mrs. Bender at the piano and 
Mr. Campbell at the organ. This com- 
bination of instruments offers perhaps 
the most alluring possibilities of any duo 
form, combining as it does the clarity 
and brilliance of the piano with the sus- 
tained tones and polyphonic capacity 
of the organ. 

These three groups will be alternated 
with two groups of vocal numbers by 
Mr. Crawford, the bass soloist of the 
evening. The combination of piano, or- 
gan, and vocal bass in solo and due 
forms makes possible a remarkably well 
rounded program. 

The general public will be admitted 
to the concert for thirty-five cents a 
person, but a special reduction has been 
made for students, who will be charged 
twenty-five cents. 



Clements and Speg Give Excellent Performance and Are Well Supported 
As Story of Jail Break Keeps Large Audience On Edge 

On Friday evening, April 7, in the 
Engle Conservatory of Music, the Kalo- 
zetean Literary Society presented "The 
Last Mile" — and got away with murder. 
The air rang with shrieks and groans 
of the dying, the howls of a madman, 
and the rattle of machine guns. Smoke 
filled the auditorium, stabs of fire 
(blank cartridges) lit the stage, men bit 
the dust on presumably unswept prison 
floor, — Death took a Roman holiday. 

G. B. Shaw Analyzed 
At Readers' Meeting 


Meeting Combines Business Session 
With Discussion Of Playboy- 

On Tuesday evening, at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Wallace, Readers' Club 
held their last meeting with the 1932- 
1933 officers in charge. At a brief bus- 
iness meeting the following new officers 
were chosen: President, Betty Schaak; 
Vice-President, Gladys Withelder; Secre- 
tary-Treasurer, Katherine Louise Wit- 
mer. All thre girls are members of the 
Junior class and have attended Reader's 
Club for some time. 

The program, which was under the 
direction of Miss Gloria La Vanture, 
was devoted to George Bernard Shaw — 
his life, plays, novels and "wise cracks". 
In order to create a background for the 
later discussion, Jane Muth gave a brief 
summary of Archibald Henderson's mon- 
umental work, "Playboy and Prophet". 
While giving the plan and outline of the 
book, she very cleverly interwove amus- 
ing anecdotes, events and comments so 
as to provide a most interesting talk. 
Betty Schaak, in her review of "Bernard 
Shaw" by Frank Harris, did not add 
much material to Miss Muth's discus- 
sion of Shaw's life. Frank Harris 
seemed to bulk larger in her view than 
did Shaw although the book was sup- 
posededly an interpretation of Shaw's 

Due to the fact that Miss Book was 
unable to be present, June Shellenberger 
read her witty and well-prepared paper 
on the novels of George Bernard Shaw. 
In the paper, Miss Book pointed out 
that few people know of Shaw's novels 
and that they are in little demand at 
public libraries. This, she remarked, ac- 
cording to a famous novelist who recent- 
ly visited the campus, should be enough 
to prove that they are well-written and 
of a class far above that of the average 
popular novel. 

Miss Marian May, who is an enthus- 
iastic Shawian, gave a meaty report on 
several of Shaw's plays. Her ideas were 
very well conceived and she expressed 
them with candor and clarity. She was 
inclined to agree with Shaw in his own 
judgment of "Man and Superman", 
which he thinks is his best work and of 
a work exceeding that of most Shake- 
spearean plays. His women, with the ex- 
ception of the heroines in "Joan of 
(Continued Page 4, Column 2) 

The fact that such a play, descending 
as it does to the old tricks of melodrama 
(disguised in the cloak of modern real- 
ism) should have held a college audi- 
ence, is a splendid tribute to the acting 
of the Kalozetean cast and the skillful 
and judicious coaching of Dr. Struble, 
the director. 

The stage setting was excellent; a row 
of seven stone-walled prison cells, each 
with its camp bed, stool, and iron grat- 
ing. A realistic setting was necessary for 
such a play as this in which dramatic 
effects were dependent almost entirely 
on physical action and physical con- 
straint. L. V. C.'s conventional blue cur- 
tain will serve as a background for most 
college plays, but not for this one. "The 
Doll's House" and "The Last Mile" are 
both prison plays, but while in "The 
Doll's House" the prison is mental (the 
pressure of social convention) and the 
best stage setting is one which effaces it- 
self and throws all attention on the char- 
acters, in "The Last Mile" there could 
be no play at all without the walls and 
bars and keys of the cells to give mo- 
tive and suspense. The Kalos are to be 
congratulated on the splendid coopera- 
tion which turned 125 yards of un- 
bleached muslin and half a mile or so 
of painted wood strips into a convinc- 
ing representation of a corridor of the 
Keystone State Penitentiary, Keystone, 

The highest praise is due also to the 
actors. In the first act especially (where 
subtlety in acting counted for most) the 
cast surpassed themselves. There was 
the peculiar and sometimes amusing 
need of careful coaching to draw out 
characteristics of each cell inmate with- 
out losing the sense of overpowering 
fear pressing on all alike. Alternating 
fits of apathy and violence, seen in most 
of the characters but especially in Wal- 
ters, were in Act 1 developed with as- 
tonishing naturalness and power. Dr. 
Struble, as director, in drawing out and 
restraining these fluctuating moods of 
hysteria, achieved a real triumph.

Music Organizations 
Active During Week 

The musical organizations of the 
Conservatory had a busy week, appear- 
ing in concert at Palmyra and at Coates- 

On Monday evening, while the band 
was rehearsing the new May Day music 
to be used for accompaniment to the 
dances, a small orchestra composed of 
select musicians journeyed to Palmyra 
to play at a dinner of the motor club 
of that town. The mixed glee club, 
gowns and all, took a trip to Coatesville 
the following evening to sing for the 
veterans at the United States Veterans' 
Hospital near the city. 

The efforts of the two organizations 
were much appreciated at both places 
and their entertainment is in demand 
for future occasions.

When, on Monday morning in chapel, 
we saw the beautiful floral tribute to the 
memory of our late president, we were 
struck anew by the evidences of the work 
Dr. Gossard had accomplished over his 
years of labor. Not only in flowers, 
but also in the cornerstones of Lebanon 
Valley's buildings, in the trees on the 
campus, in all the features of which 
we are proud, is his memory perpetuat- 

The sorrow we felt at Dr. Gossard's 
passing a year ago was tempered by the 
confidence we place in the new admin- 
istration and the belief that broad polic- 
ies and progressive viewpoints find sturdy 


Two days ago, the men's dormitory 
and Annville at large witnessed another 
tea-party. The freshmen received prop- 
er edification, the upper-classmen found 
an outlet for their pent-up repressions, 
and everyone claimed he had a good 

The sage Seniors, with many sad 
shakes of the head, dwelt mournfully 
on the glories of tea-parties that are 
past, and declared that this is not like 
"the good old times." 

We hail this evidence of evolution 
with gald acclaim. From a distressing 
and often vicious occasion, the tea-party 
has become a harmless (and senseless) 
diversion. There is good ground for 
the belief that in the future further evo- 
lution will take place, and that "juvenile 
delinquency" will find some other med- 
ium of expression. 


All those who heard the joint concert 
of the orchestra and band were im- 
pressed by the ability shown by these 
organizations. Professional musicians 
who attended the festival have compli- 
mented our organizations in no uncer- 
tain terms. This is an occasion, per- 
haps, where "a band is not without hon- 
or save on its own campus," although 
the student representation at the con- 
cert and student approval after the af- 
fair were quite gratifying. 

The outlook for the band especially, 
with it's membership mainly of fresh- 
men and sophomores, is rosy indeed. 
With notable progress made on payment 
of the uniform debt, the band may look 
to a boom period in the next few years. 

The student body will be glad to know 
that Dr. Lynch has received word Dr. 
Wagner and his family will arrive in 
Annville on Friday. 

Tuesday morning Miss Gillespie and 
the president interviewed Drs. Rosen- 
burg and Klonaur of the State Educa- 
tion Department at Harri'sburg with 
reference to Conservatory matters. 

The Lions Club of Lebanon was the 
guest of the college on Wednesday eve- 
ning. Dr. Shenk gave a history of the 
college; Dr. Lynch presented the present 
status of the school and Prof. Grimm 
spoke of the alumni about Lebanon. 

Last Friday the Finance and Faculty 
committees met at Harrisburg in the 
Education Building. 

Miss Eleanor Sheaffer, '23, formerly 
of Pueblo, Colorado, is located since 
February 17 at Espanola, New Mexico. 
She was transferred from Pueblo, where 
she had been working among the Span- 
ish-Americans as religious education di- 
rector in the United Brethren-Presby- 
terian Community Church which, for 
four years, had supported the work. 
During the depression many Spanish- 
American people left the city to return 
to Mexico or New Mexico, so that, on 
account of the exodus, the need for this 
work no longer exists. After investiga- 
tion by the Home Missionary Board, it 
was decided to discontinue the work 
and transfer Miss Sheaffer to Espanola, 
New Mexico, as community worker. 

John W. Snider, '22, of Turkeyfoot, 
a teacher in Chambersburg high school, 
died at 4:30 A. M., April 22, in the 
Chambersburg Hospital. His death was 
ascribed to a serious infection of the 
neck and to pneumonia, the lung condi- 
tion being considered secondary to the 

Mr. Snider was admitted to the hos- 
pital on Wednesday morning. His con- 
dition became progressively worse with 
the development of pneumonia. He re- 
mained in a conscious state until a short 
time before his death. 

As a member of the high school fac- 
ulty, Mr. Snider taught biology and 
general science. He became a member 
of the teaching staff in 1923, and served 
continuously until stricken by his last 

Born December 17, 1998, Mr. Snider 
received his elementary education in the 
public schools of Hamilton Township. 
He was graduated from the Chambers- 
burg high school in 1918, and four 
years later completed his academic work 
at Lebanon Valley College. The same 
year, 1922, he became science teacher 
in the Ferndale high school, Columbia 
County. He served there for one year 
and then joined the faculty of the 
Chambersburg high school. 

Mr. Snider continued his education 
after his admission to the local school's 
teaching faculty. In 1927 he earned a 
degree of Master of Arts in chemistry 
at Columbia university. At the time of 
his death he was working for a Ph. D. 
degree from State college. 

Mr. Snider was a veteran of the 
World War. He was a member of the 
St. John's United Brethren church of 
Cashtown, Hamilton township. He was 
president of District No. 3 of the Frank- 
lin County Sunday School Association. 
He taught in the junior department of 
the local teachers, training school held 
in the St. John Reformed church dur- 
ing the winter. 

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. 
Mary C. Snider, a brother and sister, 
Mark Snider and Miss Ruth Snider, all 
of Turkeyfoot. 

Mr. E. Kephart Boughter, '13, and 
Miss Edith Mae Yeager were united in 
marriage by Rev. Rhoads at the Eph- 
rata United Brethren church on March 
9, 1933. The couple will be at home at 
611 Columbia Avenue, Lansdale, Pa. 

Mr. Boughter served in the ambu- 
lance corps during the World War. He 
is now teaching at Lansdale high school. 


Things are happening in the drama 
of world economics, vast things affect- 
ing the basic policies of the great na- 
tions of the world. Such leading actors 
as President Roosevelt representing the 
United States just gone off the gold 
standard, Premier MacDonald repre- 
senting England gone off the gold 
standard nineteen months, and Premier 
Herriot representing France determined 
not to go off the gold standard, these 
are attempting to restore normality in 
the monetary situation, to disentangle 
humanity from the grip of economic 
chaos and social unrest. Just slightly 
in the background stands a supporting 
cast, that must be reckoned with, com- 
posed of Hitler of Germany, Musso- 
lini of Italy, and a nationalistic govern- 
ment of Japan. In the next few months 
what will this group have decided, ac- 

The conference between Premier 
Ramsey MacDonald and President 
Roosevelt marks the beginning of a war 
on depression through international ac- 
tion, according to Arthur Krock of the 
Times. Secretary of State Hull's opin- 
ion that only through international sta- 
bilization agreements in monetary af- 
fairs can the return to normality be af- 
fected has been taken over by the Presi- 
dent and Premier MacDonald asserts 
the same view. 

President Roosevelt's informal Wash- 
ington conference has stolen the jump 
on the London conference scheduled to 
meet sometime this summer. In doing 
this, Roosevelt has gained the approval 
of both England and America. How- 
ever, the other leading powers seam to 
fear a selfish Anglo-American agree- 
ment. In order to allay these fears the 
English and American departments of 
state have been sending reassuring mes- 
sages to the other leading foreign pow- 
ers and even now President Roosevelt 
and Premier MacDonald are drawing 
up a plan, in connection with experts, 
that will be agreeable with France. 

This week is "newspaper week" in 
New York. From all over the country 
newspaper publishers, business mana- 
gers, and editors have come to the me- 
tropolis for the annual meeting of the 
Associated Press, which was held Mon- 
day, April 24, and for the annual con- 
vention of the American Newspaper 
Publishers Association, which began 
Tuesday, April 25, and ends tomorrow. 

Two days before the Associated Press 
convention, the board of directors of 
the organization gave out the startling 
information that they will give no more 
news for the use of radio broadcasting 
chains. At the convention one of the 
chief topics of discussion was whether 
broadcasting of news by member news- 
papers themselves will be permitted. 

Radio broadcasting is also being dis- 
cussed at the Newspaper Publishers' 
Convention. It looks bad for Lowell 

Another ascent into the stratosphere 
is being planned for the Century of 
Progress Exposition in Chicago. The 
project is under the supervision of Pro- 
fessor Auguste Piccard whose ascent 
over Switzerland of more than ten miles 
startled the world and set the record of 
man's penetration of the upper air. 

Dr. Irving Muskat, Research Associ- 
ate at the University of Chicago and in 
charge of exhibits of pure science at 
the World's Fair, explains: "The object 
of the proposed balloon ascension is fur- 
ther and more scientific study of the 
cosmic rays. Apparatus is now being 
constructed under the direction of Pro- 
fessor Arthur H. Compton which will 
be more comprehensive and at the same 
time much lighter than any used here- 

The Goodyear Zeppelin Company is 
completing plans for the balloon itself 
and the Dow Chemical Company of 
Midland, Michigan, is* completing plans 
for the spherical gondola which will be 
made of a metal one third lighter than 
aluminum. The balloon will have a 
600,000 cubic feet hydrogen capacity 
and is expected to exceed by at least a 
mile Professor Piccard's 54,000 foot 

The ascent is being sponsored by the 
Chicago Daily News and the National 
Broadcasting Company. 

From Port of Spain in Trinidad 
comes this pleasant bedtime story. In 
the village of Cureye lives a certain Mr. 
Gains. As he lay sleeping in bed one 
night, he was awakened by a scamper 
of rat's overhead followed by a swishing 
sound. And something heavy dropped 
into his bed. When he tried to push 
the cold object off, he felt a bite on his 
thumb. It was a snake. Gains sought 
to grab the reptile's head and so pre- 
vent it from sinking its fangs in his 
limbs. They fought' almost silently in 
the darkness, the snake wrapping itself 
about the man's arms. When his wife's 
hysterical screams had brought neigh- 
bors with lamps and aid, Gains was ex- 
hausted. But the fangs had not touched 
him and a native cure healed the bite. 
The snake, a five foot ratonelle, had 
been hunting rats at the time it had 
fallen into the bed. 

The state of Alabama is confronted 
with a financial crisis which threatens 
the very life of its free public schools. 
With 85 per cent of its elementary and 
secondary schools already closed, with 
some counties instituting a three months 
school year such as maintained thirty 
years before, and with the necessity of 
functioning on less than half the money 
required by the educational budget, Ala- 
bama is truly in a desperate situation 
unless new sources of revenue are dis- 

For three and a half years the eco- 
nomic depression has been keenly felt 
by Alabama which ranks fifth of the 
states in the number of illiterates. For 
three and a half years teachers have had 
to exist on little or no pay, on script 
which merchants no longer honor, on 
donated aid. Unless the relief struggling 
through the clouds of depression arrives 
soon the only schools in existence in 
Alabama will be private schools. 


Tomorrow and Saturday will see at 
Franklin field in Philadelphia that stu- 
pendous and colorful spectacle, the 39th 
Penn Relay carnival. This, at least, is 
going to be something the depression 
failed to injure. More than. 3000 ath- 
letes from more than 500 schools and 
colleges will compete in 86 events. Sev- 
en American Olympic team members 
will be on hand and a crowd of 50,000 
is expected. Sprinters, jumpers, milers, 
pole vaulters, shot-putters, javelin throw- 
ers, hurdlers, all will be there to perform 
for one of America's great track and 
field events, the Penn Relays!

Tennis Eliminations 

The Lebanon Valley College tennis 
tournament, under the direction of 
Claude Donmoyer, is well into the first 
round, and matches are being played 
daily. The main object of the tourna- 
ment is an elimination contest to pick 
members of the varsity racket wielders. 

Most of the veterans are coming 
through their matches in fine style, ex- 
cept in a few cases where newcomers 
have upset the dope. Nye, a new man, 
defeated Frantz 6-1, 6-1, while Lantz 
had trouble in overcoming Mathias by 
a 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 score. 

Results of the first round matches that 
have been played are as follows: Ax 
defeated Konsko 9-7, 6-3; Nye defeated 
Frantz 6-1, 6-1; Lantz defeated Ma- 
thias 6-1, 4-6, 6-3; Wampler defeated 
Baugher 6-1, 5-7, 6-4; Zech defeated 
Remley 6-2, 6-4; Donmoyer defeated 
Hershey 6-0, 6-0; and Lehman defeated 
Glen 6-2, 6-1. 

By June Gingrich 

My first fishing trip was as thrilling 
to me as any experience that I can re- 
call. At the time, I was visiting my cou- 
sins in the country. Bill, Jim, and I 
had many good times together, and time 
flew quickly while we were together. We 
went swimming in the old swimming 
hole in the meadow, played in the straw 
stack, took the horses to the blacksmith, 
besides doing errands we were asked to 
do. I usually enjoyed everything that 
they did, but some how I never could 
get interested in skunk hunting. 

One morning we got up early. We 
washed at the pump, getting rid of 
"that tired feeling." If you don't be- 
lieve it, you try it. 

After breakfast we all made sugges- 
tions for spending the day. We might 
have gone horseback riding if there had 
been more than two horses. We gave 
up that idea and we decided it was a 
good day for fishing. 

Fishing with a burlap bag was new to 
me. That I was to learn. We trouped 
down the road with a bag, and a wooden 
pail. It was a walk of a quarter of a 
mile. When we got to the stream, first 
thing we did was to climb the fence. 
Then we took off our shoes and stock- 
ings. I was agreeably surprised to find 
out that I could help the boys to fish. 

I held one end of the bag, and Bill 
held the other end. Jim held up the 
bag in the center. The water was cold, 
but I didn't dare say a word. It was 
fun to wade through the ripples and the 
falls, to step over rocks and logs. We 
headed in the direction of the bridge. 
I thought when we reached the bridges 
that we would turn around and go back 
in the direction we came. We drew near 
to the bridge and had not caught any 
fish. The boys kept walking toward thu 
tunnel. I looked through the bridge. It 
was an old stone bridge about five feet 
high and about twenty feet long. It was 
many, many years old, and lined beau- 
tifully with cobwebs. Grass grew along 
the walls. The mud was thick and cov- 
ered with flies and bugs. The tunnel 
was full of buzzing hornets and bees. 

Why did I have to help? It would 
have been so much more pleasant to 
take our lunch and sit in the locust tree 
from where we could see the ground 
hogs run from mound to mound. I 
thought that surely the boys would not 
find any fish under the old bridge. May 
be they were not going under the bridge. 
I didn't dare utter a word or they would 
have laughed at me. Step by step we 
were drawing nearer. The boys were not 
turning back. I could not bear to think 
of stepping in that mud and getting my 
face in spider webs. There might have 
been snakes and toads in that dark place, 
too. I saw a snake under a bridge one 

The boys stooped. They were going 
under the bridge, without even asking 
me if I wanted to go under it. I choked 
back a sob. My little toes were sinking 
in mud. Each step was misery, every 
moment was an hour. There would be 
nothing gained by turning back now, 
because we were halfway through. If 
they could do it, I could, and I would. 
We tramped on through darkness, mud 
oozing through my toes, my face just 
one solid mass of spider webs, while I 
tried to keep back my screams of feat- 
The boys laughed and whistled, pausing 
frequently to spit out spiders. They en- 
joyed it. 

Light penetrated the darkness. I few 
relieved. I could breathe without fear. 
I felt rather smart to have braved it all 
without a whimper. The boys didn 1 
say anything, but I know they thought 
I was brave. 

We jerked up the bag. We were not 
disappointed because there were hun- 
dreds of little minnows squirming 
around in the net. I was pleased to g et 

We put the fish in a big tub. There 
we could fish for them without a rod ° r 
license. They didn't live very long- 
Maybe they didn't like bread a«^

Day Studes Win And 
Lose With New Nine 


Costly Errors Drop Second Game 
To Hummelstown Team 
By 9 - 8 Score 

The day student boys with more or 
less ambition and high aspirations have 
formed a secret order; — at least that's 
what it seemed to be when it was re- 
vealed a few days ago. They call it a 
baseball team, and are they proud of it! 
It's a somewhat versatile aggregation 
which recently returned from its spring 
training camp where it enjoyed a suc- 
cessful pre-season campaign. The team 
boasts many promising young stars, and 
it is rumored that several well known 
scouts have their eagle eyes on prospec- 
tive "big leaguers." 

Gruber Pulls Merriwell 
In order to test its actual ability, this 
infant organization encountered the 
South Lebanon nine and successfully 
emerged on the smiling side of a 3-2 
score. The outstanding feature of this 
game was a backward running catch by 
Fred Gruber, performed in the ninth 
inning with the sacks loaded and two 
men out. Bill Focht and Jimmy Frantz 
turned in sterling performances on the 

Flushed with the glamour of their ini- 
tial victory, these brilliant luminaries 
proceeded to engage a strong team rep- 
resenting Hummelstown, but here they 
were forced to taste the bitter with the 
sweet and to suffer a heart-breaking de- 
feat at the hands of the opposition by 
a 9-8 score. Several costly errors proved 
to be the stepping stones toward this 
set-back. The feature of this game for 
the local combination was the hitting of 
Fake and Leib ig. Leibig and Witter 
shared the pitching duty in this game. 

Despite this first humiliation, the boys 
are still determined to display their abil- 
ity. They have scheduled another game 
with the Hebron nine and ars dickering 
for games with other teams. The squad 
consists of Uhler, ss; King, If; Fake, c; 
Witter, lb-p; Brinser, 3b; Kuhlman, cf; 
Ax, 2b; Frantz, rf-p; Liebig, p; Focht,

rules of composition with his tongue in 
his cheek. Writing is an art and has to 
be felt by the person doing it. 

When a person undertakes to write, 
he must choose early in his career whe- 
ther he is going to write good stuff or 
the type of material that appeals to the 
masses. If he writes popular stuff, he 
will become well known and receive 
money accordingly, while in writing 
good books he will achieve social dis- 
tinction. A writer cannot retain his so- 
cial position once he has acquired it by 
writing a good book and then writing a 
"pot-boiler" the next year. The critics 
will not consider him a good writer. Be- 
cause a book is popular it is not consid- 
ered good material, but this does not 
mean that all popular books are no 
good. "Hunky" after the unanimous 
selection of the Book-of-the-Month had 
only a comparatively good sale. 

Mr. Williamson compared good books 
to good music, to be understood they 
both have to be analyzed. He said that 
the average European peasant is of a 
more serious mature nature than the 

American college student. This doesn't 
mean that they go about with long 
books on their faces but that they con- 
sider life more seriously. Two-thirds of 
the greatest products of a writer is what 
he writes and not his skill. 

Regarding criticisms, he said that they 
were opinionated and not equal. A book 
maybe criticized by a cub reporter, good 
critic or a disgruntled writer who will 
never give another credit for doing what 
he himself has failed to do. Writers 
don't like each other. There is no fra- 
ternity of feeling among them like there 
is in the other professions. Perhaps 
this lies in the fact that they are indi- 
vidualistic. A writer may have friends 
but they are usually unknown to him. 
Mr. Williamson said that he still clung 
to his ideals of success; a success that 
is effervescent and flashy, a youthful 

In talking to Dr. Wallace, our author 
friend told him that the L. V. C. stu- 
dent body had been his best audience, 
they knew when to be serious and when 
to laugh and that he had enjoyed talk- 
ing to them. 

Mr. Williamson was very well received 
by the student body. He was one of the 
best speakers that has been on the L. V. 
C. campus this year. 

The various big cities saw quite a few 
of our professors. Miss Ella Moyer 
spent a few days in New York. Miss 
Mary Gillespie visited in Johnstown. 
Professor and Mrs. Rutledge, Professor 
and Mrs. Bender, and Professor Craw- 
ford were all seen in the "city of broth- 
erly love." 

On April 8, near Baltimore, Md., Dr. 
E. H. Stevenson was married to Miss 
Mary Stella Johnson. During Easter 
vacation, Dr. and Mrs. Stevenson spent 
some time in Penn-Yan, New York. 
They are now residing at 40 E. Penn 
Ave., Cleona, and are at home to all 
their friends. The faculty and students 
of Lebanon Valley extend to them their 
heartiest congratulations.

Four movements of the beautiful

The performance was skillfully done. 

The band then swung into the popu- 
lar college song, "On Wisconsin," by 
Purdy. The catchy rhythm of Her- 
bert's "Al Fresco" and "La Golon- 
drinka" by Serradell, were next. The 
clever, stirring "American Patrol" by 
Meachan, with all its familiar song 
gems, followed, and then a return to 
Sousa for "Washington Post." The 
concert ended with the "Star Spangled

Kalozeteans Present 
Wexley's "Last Mile" 

(Continued from Page 1) 
Percy Clements as Walters, who 
walked the Last Mile in Act 1, gave a 
convincing rendering of the most pow- 
erful part in the play. The story of 
Walters kept us in the realm of genu- 
ine tragedy. There was no sentimental 
appeal for him (his crime was suffi- 
ciently brutal and revolting), but he 
was entirely human; and through our 
sympathy with him, we were enabled to 
feel something of the peculiar horror 
inspired by a death that comes openly, 
in cold blood, and at a given moment 
by the clock. It was an exceedingly dif- 
ficult part, that of this sick, frightened 
youth trying to control himself and play 
the jaunty hero while the guards were 
nervously trying to open the jammed 
door of the Death Chamber for him. 
Clements played his part so well that 
after his exit the sudden dimming of 
the lights and the drone of the motor 
came with a shock to the audience. 

Clements was well supported. There 
were no failures. The Keeper and the 
Guards were convincing. Furlong made 
an excellent negro (and the only attrac- 
tive character in the play). Albert Eb- 
bert as Father O'Connors was as digni- 
fied and stupid a chaplain as the lines 
required. Speg, as John Mears, sitting 
with head bowed in a mood of watchful 
despair, was in the first act a powerful 
foil to the excitability of the others. In 
the later acts, Speg's voice and move- 
ments easily dominated the stage, but 
the lines themselves gave him little 
chance to distinguish himself for any- 
thing more than "dumb show and 
noise." William Barnes as the cool, 
cynical "Red Kirby," Stuart Goodman 
as the sentimental Fred Mayor, George 
Konsko as the hard-boiled but priest- 
loving Italian, Walter Krumbiegel as 
the mad Eddie Werner, — they were all 
successful. Krumbiegel had little to say, 
but his acting was vivid and consistent. 
He completely sank himself in the part, 
and the play of those long, white fin- 
gers about the bars of the cell was a 
sight to remember. 

The actors are to be complimented 
on maintaining their roles throughout 
the evening — not an easy thing to do, 
since all the parts are intensely emo- 
tional. The play rests exclusively on its 
emotional qualities; intellectually it is 
juvenile. The satire at the expense of 
the law, the police, the Church (some- 
what toned down in the version given 
by Kalo) is presented in the form of 
such crude and obvious irony (verging 
on burlesque) as very nearly to spoil the 
realistic atmosphere on which the play 

The effective theme of "The Last 
Mile" is simply man's naked horror of 
Death. That theme is powerfully hand- 
led in the first act. The situation is 
strong, the dialogue natural, and the 
emotional effect compelling . But in 
the second and third acts the spell is 
broken. When the bent fingure of 
Mears (powerful in his silence) springs 
up and takes charge of a movie melo- 
drama, the play collapses. Clever act- 
ing is thrown away in the noise and 
tumult. And even the noise and tumult 
defeats its own object. Death ceases to 
be horrible; it becomes amusing. 

We do not blame Goodman for fee- 
ble acting in the pathetic Elaine parts 
— the author's lines themselves were 
maudlin. It was no fault' of Krumbie- 
gel's that Werner's part turned into 
burlesque when he spouted Tennyson's 
lines about "the lily maid of Astolat." 
The author had overdone his irony. No 
amount of good acting could have saved 
the last act. The author had spread his 
colors too thickly. The imagination was 
glutted and sickened. When Mayor was 
dying by inches — why, even the revolver 
that was to have ended his pain baulked 
and refused to go off; it was tired, and 
the Killer had to let' Mayor die un- 

Kalos and any of their friends who 
may have wondered what it felt like in

At Readers' Meeting

Arc", and "Candida", are for the most 
part badly conceived and weakly drawn. 
Thus, in a judicious manner, Miss May 
built up a very strong, critical estimate 
of Shaw as a playwright. 

The vast number of newspaper col- 
umns devoted to Shaw in his recent visit 
here were the subject of a report given 
by Gladys Withelder. Miss Withelder 
dealt especially with the subject matter 
of the lecture Shaw delivered in New 
York City, about a week ago. She 
thought his ideas as he expressed them 
there, were rather old and rehashed 
versions of his earlier and more vigor- 
ous thoughts. She condemned the 
Americans for so calmly accepting 
Shaw's dogmatic, opinionated remarks 
about the United States and rather re- 
sented the fact that Shaw was greeted 
and treated so royally here. This brought 
on a heated argument between Shawians 
and anti-Shawians which proved to be 
one of the high-lights of the evening. 

This well-chosen program was brought 
to a close by a report on Shaw's latest 
book, "Adventures of the Black Girl in 
Her Search for God." Mrs. Wallace 
very sympathetically ran over the main 
thread of the story, and brought out 
very cleverly all the version of God that 
confronted the little black girl, and her 
intelligent handling of these concep- 
tions. She dismissed them all, one by 
one, maried an Irish man, had a lot of 
"Chocolate" pickaninnies and discovered 
that she no longer had time to spend on 
her search for God. In determining the 
classification of this book, Mrs. Wallace 
said it was neither novel or essay but 
nearer a travelogue than any other type 
of literature. 

At the close of the meeting it was 
announced that the next program, which 
is to be in charge of the new president, 
wil be held at the usual time, two weeks 
from Tuesday.

Let's start today with a little serious- 
ness — in fact, with something that goes 
deeper than seriousness. For a moment 
let's forget all the lightness and go back 
a year. The school lost a noble pillar, 
last April, the world lost a real leader, 
we all lost a fine friend and an excellent 
ideal. The memory, if not the man, 
lives on. 

We nominate for the Hall of Fame: 
Cavalcade. April trout fishing and

swimming was unexpected. Tennis, wa-

of Spring. New plaid shirts with ties to 

We nominate for Oblivion: Caval- 
cade's aftermath. Things that look like 
corn-flakes. Lehman's second attempt to

individualism. People who still insist on

hands in the lecture room.

Dr. Butterwick was conducting an af-

"Didn't your sister always get what she 
wanted?" He called on one of the mem-

Dr. Butterwick paused, and then con- 
tinued: "Well, is there anyone else in 
here who says the girls don't always get 
what they want?" In the back row Ann 
Butterwick straightened up. "Yes," she 
said, "I'm one of them!"

The time: Saturday midnite. The 
place: Lebanon. The characters: Jor- 
dan, Umberger, and Palatini. The men 
ate seated around a dining room table 
in the Casa Umberger. Before each is 
a mountain of vari-flavored ice cream. 
They eat, or should we say bolt, in 
silence for some time. Then Palatini, 
about halfway through, quits flatly. The 
others seize his ice cream and add it to 
their pints. 

Jordan (eating furiously) : "You 
know, I read somewhere that men of 
high intelligence have the greatest ca- 
pacity for this sort of thing!" 

Umberger: "Yes, I know. Say, this 
is only an entree for me! I could eat 
another quart." 

Jordan: "Me too!" 

Palatini breaks down in tears and 
seizes a volume from the bookshelf. It 
is from the Podumk Correspondence 
schools — a tome on "How to Develop 
the Brain in Six Condensed Lessons." 
He burrows deeply into it as Umberger 
and Jordan relax with self-satisfied airs 
and a plate of chocolate cake.

A nationwide contest to find Ameri- 
ca's typical co-ed for 1933 is being 
launched by the pubfycation College 
Humor and Sense and Universal Pi c . 
tures Corporation. The winner will fc> e 
named "The AU-American Girl" and 
will receive a movie contract this sum- 
mer for not less than $100 a week, with 
expenses to and from Hollywood. 

Judges in the contest include such 
prominent figures as Russell Patterson 
and Jefferson Machamer, nationally f a . 
mous artists; Stanley V. Gibson, pub- 
lisher of College Humor and Sense and 
other popular magazines; Carl Laemmle, 
Jr., general manager of Universal Pi c . 
tures, and Larry Reid, editor of Motion 
Picture and Movie Classic. 

In order that students may partici- 
pate in the contest, without interruption 
of school work, all decisions will be made 
from photographs. No one will be asked 
to make a personal appearance. 

Universal Pictures, under the direc- 
tion of Mr. Laemmle, will star the lucky 
student in a football picture to be pro- 
duced in Hollywood, shortly after July 
1. Universal already has the two out- 
standing football pictures of all time to 
its credit, "The Spirit of Notre Dame" 
and "All-American." If the contest 
winner shows promise in this picture, 
she will be given an opportunity for 
continued stardom, as well as a chance 
at radio and television work. 

The contest is open to all students in 
colleges of reputable standing. Each 
entrant must submit two photographs, 
one in profile and one full face. The 
photos must be accompanied by descrip- 
tive data and a statement from an elo- 
cution or dramatic teacher regarding 
the student's quality of voice. A cover 
from the current issue of College Hu- 
mor and Sense must also be included.

Seven From L.V.C, 
Attend Conference 
Held At Kutztown 


Able Speakers Address Delegates 
On Problems Vital To Col- 
lege Y. M. C. A. 

The colleges of the eastern district of 
Pennsylvania held their annual student 
Y. M. C. A. cabinet training conference 
at the Kutztown state teachers college, 
April 27-30. There were present repre- 
sentatives from about twelve colleges 
and a total of about ninety delegates. 

The main speaker of the conference 
was Rev. Edwin N. Faye, the pastor of 
the TriAity Reformed church in Norris- 
town. Rev. Faye gave two lectures dur- 
ing the course of the conference on the 
subjects "Making Christianity Dynam- 
ic" and "Applying the Principles of 
Jesus Today." In his first, he called at- 
tention to the fact that the terms Dy- 
namic and Christianity are synonyms in 
the most complete meaning of both 
words. In his discussion he referred to 
the parable of the five wise and five 
foolish virgins. All ten possessed their 
lamps, but five lacked the oil for their 
lamps at the required time. The lamps 
are abilities but to them must be added 
the oil of application to complete their 
usefulness. Rev. Fays wis a forceful 
and convincing speaker, and quite cap- 
able of dealing with his topics. In his 
second lecture, "Applying the Principles 
of Jesus Today," which was delivered at 
the table of the conference banquet, he 
showed how the Christian must add to 
the general requirements of social har- 
mony the four qualities of justice, en- 
thusiasm, sympathy, and sacrifice. Then 
with the initial letters of these words, he 
attempted to spell Jesus but found lack- 
ing the letter "u". The "u" is each in- 
dividual who must give himself to the 
application of the principles besides ex- 
hibiting the four aforementioned char- 
acteristics. With that, the name Jesus 
is complete. 

Rev. Calvert N. Ellis, professor of 
Biblical Studies of Juniata College, was 
another of the prominent speakers of 
the conference. During the four days 
he conducted a series of devotional talks 
throughout which he discussed certain 
life necessities. The first he mentioned 

W.S.G.A. Celebrates | 
Birthday of Dean 

Last Wednesday evening, April 26, 
the girls of Lebanon Valley enter- 
tained in North Hall parlor in hon- 
or of Mrs. Green's birthday. The 
party began at nine o'clock, and, 
when all the guests were assembled, 
Minna Wolkskeil took charge of the 
program. She introduced as the first 
number a vocal solo, "Florian's 
Song," by Helen Summy. Miss Sum- 
ny was accompanied by Oleta Die 
trick. Other selections on the pro- 
gram were as follows: A violin solo, 
"Gavotte No. 2", Papper, by Mar- 
tha Elser; a piano solo, "The Scarf 
Dance," Chaminade, by Virginia 
Summers, and two vocal solos, "Life," 
Curran, and "Blossom Land," Elliott, 
by Charlotte Stabley. When the pro- 
gram was over, delicious refreshments 
were served. Marian May, the W. S 
G. A. president, chose this time to 
present Mrs. Green with a pew- 
ter coffee set, a gift from the Leba 
non Valley girls. The remainder of 
the time was spent in conversation 
and the party ended at eleven o'clock 
The girls all joined in wishing Mrs. 
Green a very happy birthday.

The new catalogue of Lebanon Val- 
ley College made its first showing on 
the campus just before the Easter vaca- 
tion. A supply of them, seemingly un- 
limited, first appeared in the registrar's 
office, and within a short time quite a 
few catalogues were put in circulation. 
They may still be obtained from the 
registrar for the asking. 

A survey of the catalogue brings to 
light several changes over those of for- 
mer years. Most important is the fact 
that the new catalogue does not include 
any pictures of building on the campus. 
While pictures usually add to the at- 
tractiveness and interest of books, and 
while it may be a good idea to show 
prospective students the principal build- 
ings on the campus, other things in the 
book are more important. Besides, it 
was an advantage economically to cut 
all pictures from the catalogue. 

In place of pictures, the new bulletin 
includes a complete key to the position 
of all the college buildings. 

Another change noted is the fact that 
each department of the school has listed 
specific aims below the title, where, in 
former years, only a few department's 
listed their aims. Now a student reads 
first a statement of the general aims of 
the subject as a whole, and reads a de- 
scription of the separate courses in that 
subject. This latter arrangement corre- 
sponds to that followed in previous 

In the list of faculty members it is 
noted that the regular college faculty 
members have only two or three of their 
main degrees listed, where in other cata- 
logues there appeared a resume of their 
entire teaching activity. Conservatory 
faculty members, however, are still listed 
in the old way. 

Several changes appear in the num- 
bers given to various courses. Bible 54 
has given way to Bible 52 or 82. Simi- 
larly, other changes concerned with the

Radio Programs 
To Be Broadcast 
From Harrisburg 


Glee Club And Band To Appear 
May 8 And 15 — Band Plans 
Campus Concert 

The administration has completed ar- 
rangements for two L. V. C. radio pro- 
grams over radio station WCOD, on 
top the Governor Hotel, Harrisburg. 
The first of these programs is scheduled 
for Monday, May 8, from 8:15 to 8:45 
P. M. when the Glee Club will perform 
for the "mike." The band will make 
its radio debut a week later, on May 15. 

Negotiations are underway for regu- 
lar weekly L. V. C. programs to begin 
next semester. These programs will con- 
sist of musical numbers by students and 
papers by faculty members. 

The band's program, which will in- 
clude several beautiful selections played 
in the recent Music Festival, will begin 
at 8:15 P. M. standard time (9:15 Day- 
light Saving Time). A march, probably 
"Stars and Stripes Forever," will intro- 
duce the concert, and Saunders, soloist, 
and the melodic, four-part "Ballet Egyp- 
tien." Professor Rutledge is planning 
to take the entire band. Transportation 
will be provided by several of the 
'Vj-ofj" ~~c? h" the band members who 
have automobiles. 

The band is also planning to present 
an open-air, all request program on the 
campus some time before examinations 
if an open date can be obtained, and 
to sponsor a dance in the gym after- 
wards. However, the prospects of such 
an evening of entertainment are dim as 
the schedule for the music department 
is nearly complete for the remainder 
of the school year. 

L.V.C. To See Plays 
By Shakespeare 

On May 17 our campus is going 
to have the privilege of seeing two 
Shakespearean plays presented by 
the Shakespeare players of Utica, 
New York. The company has de- 
cided to put on "The Merchant of 
Venice" at a matinee beginning at 
3:00 P. M. and will be a presenta- 
tion of "Hamlet." 

These players are very well known, 
having visited many campuses in the 
eastern part of the United States. 
They come on their own responsi- 
bility and ask only the support of 
the student body. The advance ticket 
sale will be in charge of the English 
department. All those taking Eng 
lish 66 are urged to make plans in 
order to attend both of these per 
f ormances. 

For the benefit of the Annville 
high school students the company 
has offered a special admission rate 
of thirty cents. General admission, 
which" includes that of college stu- 
dents, is placed at the modest price 
of forty cents.

Philos Polish Plans 
For Play and Dance 


Literary Society Will Hold Spring 
Formal At Hotel Weimer, 

An unexpected feature marked the 
spring concert presented by the Con- 
servatory faculty in Engle hall last 
Thursday. As Alexander Crawford, 
bass soloist, was unable to appear due 
to a voice condition, his place was taken 
by Edgar Schofield, of New York City, 
whose appearance was a complete sur- 
prise to those who had assembled in the 
hall to hear the eight o'clock concert. 

Only an hour before had Mr. Scho- 
field arrived in Annville to take his part 
in the recital with Ruth Engle Bender 
and Porter Campbell, conservatory fac- 
ulty members who appeared in duo upon 
the piano and organ respectively. 

The audience was fully repaid by 
hearing Mr. Schofield's fine bass bari- 
tone voice. The artistry which has won 
him renown in the field of oratorio was 
fully demonstrated in the two groups 
of numbers with which he delighted his 

The program opened with two num- 
bers on the piano and organ, "Piece 
Heroique," by Cesar Franck, and 
"Dreams," by R. E. Stoughton, played 
by Mrs. Bender and Mr. Campbell.

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
extends a cordial invitation to all fac- 
ulty members, students, alumni, and 
friends to be present at its sixty-sixth 
anniversary, Friday evening, May 5, at 
8 P. M. in the Engle Conservatory, and 
at 10 P. M. in the Alumni gymnasium. 
For its anniversary play, Philo will pre- 
sent "She Stoops to Conquer," a five 
act comedy by Oliver Goldsmith. This 
feature is scheduled to begin promptly 
at 7:45 P.M., daylight saving time, and 
will be followed two hours later by a 
reception and dance in the gymnasium. 

On the eve of the celebration of this 
sixty-sixth anniversary, Philo members 
feel assured of the success of the affair. 
With all major plans completed and 
nearly every detail provided for, the so- 
ciety hopes to make this the best of all 
anniversaries. The various committees 
have worked diligently with that point 
in mind, and all have reported favor- 
able progress. 

"She Stoops to Conquer" will provide 
an enjoyable evening's entertainment for 
every type of person. There is plenty 
of humor, much romance, and more 
complexity. The cast has the play well 
in hand, and has been working to ac- 
quire some polish to the production. 
Dr. Wallace, as coach, has been the 
guiding hand in all their efforts. 

The usual reception and dance in the 
gymnasium will conclude the evening's, 
activities. Music for dancing will be' 
furnished by the College Ramblers. 

Philo will further observe its anni- 
versary on Saturday evening, May 6, in 
the form of a dance at the Hotel Wei- 
mer, in Lebanon. This will be the first 
anniversary dance ever held by Philo, 
but it is hoped that it is only the be- 
ginning of a series of spring dances 
which will be sponsored yearly. Al Hol- 
lander and his orchestra from York 
will be present to furnish music for 
dancing. Arrangements have been made 
for a "blues" singer to come with the 
orchestra, and this is expected to be one 
of the highlights of the evening. 

Junior Prom In 
Hershey Ballroom 
Is Great Success 


Dan Gregory Furnishes Music For 
Annual Affair — Ninety 
Couples Attend 

On Friday evening, April 28, to the 
lilting strains of "Sylvia," Dan Gregory 
and his popular orchestra opened the 
annual Junior Prom. A glorious eve- 
ning, good music, an excellent dance 
floor, a newly decorated ballroom, soft 
lights, white flannels, soft clinging dress- 
es, laughter, and high spirits made an 
excellent setting for this spring func- 
tion. Over ninety couples were present, 
depression or no depression, an increase 
of about twenty over last year. 

The promenade, of course, was the 
main feature of the evening. Amid 
much applause, Max Light was an- 
nounced as the prom leader, previously 
elected in chapel by the entire student 
body. However, his being "the chosen 
one" was not made public to the camp- 
us until the night of the prom. Max 
has certainly earned this honor, being 
prominent socially and as an athlete 
ever since his entrance as a freshman 
to Lebanon Valley. With his charming 
partner, Louise Gillan, and the able as- 
sistance of Professor Shaar, the proces- 
sion began. A special committee had 
previously worked hard in rewriting the 
Alma Mater and adapting it to an ap- 
propriate orchestration. Much concen- 
tration and numerous trips were neces- 
sary to complete successfully this mas- 
terpiece of junior construction. 

Arrayed in a long line the couples 
started on their lengthy march, only a 
few less daring and more easily fatigued 
of the dancers prefering to stand by 
and watch the performance. The length 
of the ballroom, past the awe-inspiring 
row of faculty members and friends, 
tripping around the corners, slipping, 
sliding over the newly waxed floor, oc- 
casionally a stray sheep falling, nodding 
and smiling to friends as they passed 
by, clutching one's partner — on went 
the eager marchers. Forming double 
lines, breaking into single file, winding 
in and out until there was a tangled 
mass of humanity in the center, hum- 
ming the familiar strains "To Thee, 
Dear Alma Mater. . . ." Then the for-

About the only thing needed to in-

for this special event have been prac-

day afternoon at 1:30 P. M., daylight 
saving time, promises to be one of the 
most beautiful and elaborate ever given 
at Lebanon Valley. A large group of

ed here to view the event and renew old

The question, arises each year at this 
season whether or not a community 
should adopt daylight saving time. As 
would be expected, there is little agree- 
ment on this subject. The communi- 
ties which adopt the new system seem 
to please no one, while those who con- 
tinue on the same plan seem to please 
as many. Each district must consider its 
own people. 

College life is particularly benefited 
by the advanced time. The students 
gain an extra hour in the evening for 
tennis, swimming, and other sports, 
while the advance of the morning hours 
does not inconvenience them. As a 
community within its own walls, a col- 
lege profits decidedly from the practice 
of daylight time. 

However, no community is entirely 
confined within its own limits. This is 
unquestionably applicable to college life. 
When neighboring and "home" towns 
do not adopt the same time, many stu- 
dents are inconvenienced. Perhaps by a 
common vote, this question could be 
settled to the satisfaction of the major- 
ity of members of the community. 


It is hardly possible to imagine two 
days packed with more activity than 
that which will be displayed during this 
Friday and Saturday. All the celebra- 
tion of the May Day pageant, the ten- 
nis match on Saturday morning and the 
baseball game in the afternoon, coupled 
with the excitement of an anniversary 
play on Friday night and a spring for- 
mal the following evening — this surely 
means that some students will be run- 
ning around in the proverbial circles. 

That this abnormal activity is of ad- 
vantage to the college cannot be doubt- 
ed. Many prospective students will be 
present to witness May Day, and prob- 
ably will gain a slightly exaggerated idea 
of the furor that grips our college. 

Other colleges have their Homecom- 
ing Days and Alumni Days. May Day 
fills the same position at Lebanon Val- 
ley, for many graduates find this time 
to return to Alma Mater. All the stu- 
dents who, by reason of responsible po- 
sitions find a great deal of work shifted 
onto their shoulders, will breathe sighs 
of relief when the week-end is over. In 
the meantime, they pray for fair 

Last Thursday Dr. Lynch addressed 
the meeting of the Shenandoah county 
district rally. The subject he chose was 
"Religion in the Home." On Friday 
morning he spoke to the Junior and 
Senior high schools of Hershey. Here 
he had "Opportunity" for the theme. 

The Lynches spent the week-end at 
Shenandoah College, Dayton, Virginia. 
Dr. Lynch preached at the Sunday 
morning service in the college church. 
In the afternoon he spoke at the Young 
People's anniversary service. On Mon- 
day morning he attended the chapel 
period and engaged in student solici- 

Today, our president is speaker at 
the annual fellowship supper of the 
United Brethren church of Boonesbor- 
ough, Maryland. 

Dr. Lynch will preach at the morning 
worship in the Coatesvilie United 
Brethren church on Sunday. In the eve- 
ning he will attend the Mother's Day 
meeting at Schuylkill Haven. 

On May 9, the United Brethren Gen- 
eral Conference will open at Akron, 
Ohio. Friday, May 12, Dr. Lynch will 
address the conference and have as his 
subject "Bonebrake Seminary — a luxury 
or a necessity."

May Day is being celebrated in other 
parts of the world but how differently 
from the way planned for Lebanon Val- 
ley. No dance practices or mad rushing^ 
to collect materials. Berlin — All Ger- 
many prepared to make the day a 
national labor manifestation. Moscow 
— Foreign delegations packed the ho- 
tels for Soviet Russia's greatest demon- 
stration. Madrid — Work was suspend- 
ed throughout the country by govern- 
ment orders. La Palmas— -Large fires 
were set on the eve of a general strike 
in the Canary Islands. Mexico City — 
Trolley, bus, and telephone services were 
suspended, saloons were closed, and 
newspapers omitted their editions

Pearl S. Buck, a missionary for many 
years in China under the Presbyterian 
Board, has resigned her post. Mrs. Buck 
has lately received much criticism by her 
church public because of views expressed

waiting with pleasure the publication 
of more of her atmosphere work. 



The Glee Club gave two more pro- 
grams this week. On Sunday eve-

By W. H. Hudson 

W. H. Hudson's masterpiece, "Green 
Mansions," is a colorful fast-moving 
tale of natural life in the South Ameri- 
can jungles and is rich in scenic beauty 
and folk-lore. The perfect natural set- 
ting frames the story of an idealized 
love between a civilized man and a beau- 
tiful girl who had lived most of her life 
in the forests. 

A plot against the Venezuelan gov- 
ernment caused the hero, Mr. Abel, to 
leave the country. He outfitted himself 
for a trip into the interior, in order to 
search for gold with which he might re- 
coup his fortunes. He passed from one 
Indian tribe to another until he was 
taken as hostage. It was then that he 
learned of "Green Mansions," a forest 
in which lived an enchantress. Abel, 
despite the taboo, invaded this forbid- 
den land where the white witch, Rima, 
lived. This beautiful but half-wild girl 
staved the-" with her grandfather. Abe' 
fell in leive with her. 

Rima, accompanied by her grand- 
father and Abel, goes in search of Ria- 
lama, her mother's land. On the return 
journey, impatient to get back, she pre- 
cedes the others and is captured and 
burnt by hostile Indians. Distracted by 
'-°r death, Abel wreaks his revenge or 
the Indians. After a period of insane 
grief, he returns to civilization and be- 
comes a friend to all who he know 
are unfortunate. His death comes as a 
great loss to all who loved him. 


We nominate for Oblivion: The "air- 
plane beacon" shining from the new 
service station. Spring fever (now that 
exam schedules are posted). The ex- 
traordinary profusion of jacketed pota- 
toes and peas in the dining hall. Legal 

We nominate for the Hall of Fame: 
The Junior Prom because, aside from 
the unusual fact that it made money, it 
was enjoyed by all. Stew Byer's mummi- 
fied finger. 

The Athletic Council recently pub- 
lished a set of rules governing the use 
of the tennis courts, which it desires 
that the student body strictly obey. Now 
that Lebanon Valley has courts of which 
is can duly be proud, the council feels 
as though every student ought to main- 
tain a certain amount of personal re- 
sponsibility in preventing the misuse of 
them, and in giving his fellow student 
an equal chance to play on them. The 
rules as published by the council are: 

1. Rubber-soled shoes only will be 

2. Absolutely no high-heeled shoes 

3. Male attire will be white trousers 
and white shirts at all times. 

4. If courts are crowded, best two 
out of three sets only allowed. Give 
everybody a chance. 

5. Ground-keeper has absolute charge 
of courts, and his word is final in re- 
gards to use of courts after rains, etc. 

6. Use the steps leading to the courts 
so that the grass along the edges will be 

7. No courts shall be used during 
chapel period. 


Kandrat and Zech added their niche 
to the array of brown splotches on the 
Chem lab ceiling on Saturday. They 
were going to distill Potassium Creso- 
late, a step in the production of cam- 
phor. Zech was at the controls, Kan- 
drat was reading directions out of the 
cook book, your correspondent (writ- 
ing especially for La Vie from the front 
line) was parked on the window ledge 
trying to catch his thumb. 

"Gee," said Zech, "it's nice out to- 

"Uh huh," answered Kandrat, "but 
it might rain." 

There was a hiss and a roar as the 
cloud burst. Every man for himself. 
Zech dived under the fume hood while 
Kandrat and yours truly raced neck on 
neck around the corner of the table. 
The smoke cleared slowly, and the beau- 
tiful spring sunshine beamed in on a 
cresolated ceiling, wall, table, reagent 
shelf, drawer of equipment, distilling 
apparatus, locker, and floor. There 
were no casualties. Private Kandrat, 
weeping pitifully at the loss of Mr. 
Cresolate, was burned in twelve places 
on his Greek physiognomy. Yours truly 
(writing exclusively for La Vie from 
the front line) suffered shock and eight 
or nine scorches resembling pock-marks 
on his face. Mr. Zech escaped with no 

Kandrat and Zech were assigned to 
K. P. duty immediately and both looked 
becomingly domestic with their mops 
and wash rags. The war is proceeding

La Vie from the front line) has been 
censored by the war department, which 
deemed it necessary completely to delete 
the choice language of Private Kandrat. 

Professor Bender flashed his rare abil- 
ity for lecture jokes the other day in 
18. The lecture was on the metallurgy 
of silver and gold. The class was di- 
gressing for a moment into a few re- 
marks of the relative value of minerals. 
"Personally," said Dr. Bender, "I think 
there are many metals which are pret- 
tier and more useful than gold. But 
then, again, the mere words gold and 
>latinum have an appeal of their own 
now. People would laugh at you if you 
said your watch was made of German 
si'ver. And this always brings to my 
mind the story of the woman who al- 
ways wanted the best of everything. One 
of her family was sick and the physi- 
cian told her she would have to use sil- 
ver nitrate for the patient. "Oh, my, 
said the lady, "wouldn't gold nitrate do 
just as well? Price is no object, you 

And, speaking of the retelling of pr°' 
fessors' jokes, someone remarked last 
week that there was no use printing 
those things since the doctors told the 
same stories every year anywhow. Well) 
then, if we're not telling the college 
anything new by a repetition of these, 
perhaps their appearance in this columfl 
will make the Profs joke-conscious. 
Then, when they realize how many de- 
cades they have been repeating a certain 
mossy tale, they will restock, and sut" 
prise their classes with a new run. 

Things you girls never knew until 
now: That Hiltner spends at least a" 
hour every day in combing his halt' 
That Kowalewski does a prescribed se £ 
of exercises every night before retiring 
in a pair of purple pajamas. That Satf 1 
Ulrich uses a patented deodorant. Tha £ 
Kandrat used only one blanket al 
through the winter. That Umberger t e ' 
freshes himself by playing the ocharifl* 
at any ungodly hour of the morni°#'

Captain Claude Donmoyer and his 
Valley racketeers treked up the Juniata 
Huntington on Friday and lost their 
second match of the season, this time 
to the Juniata Indians by a score of 
four matches to three. 

Captain Donmoyer again displayed 
his tennis superiority by downing Bur- 
lew in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-3, thus 
keeping his slate clean for the season. 
Nye put up a fight in the first set 
against Stewart of Juniata but weakened 
in the second and lost his match, 6-4 
and 6-1. 

Lehman and Lantz lost in three sets 
to J- Wenger and Settle, respectively. 
These were two of the most interesting 
matches played. Walborn won handily 
from his man in straight sets, 6-3 and

match and won the other. Lehman and 
Walborn lost in three sets to Ginsler

L,V. Faculty Group 

Feeds the Lions 

The faculty were the hosts cf the 
Lebanon Lions Club at a dinner given 
in the college dining hall on April 26, 
1933. The purpose of the dinner was 
to acquaint the business men of Leba 
non with our school. The president or 
the Lions Club is Mr. C. T. Hickernell, 
district attorney of Lebanon county. 

After dinner, Dr. Lynch spoke on the 
advantages of the college in general; 
Dr. Shenk related the history of our in- 
stitution and Prxeisor Grimm spok 
about the aluTi-v. Entertainment was

L. V. C. Takes Every Match 

The Lebanon Valley netmen met the 
Elizabethtown College racket wielders on 
the Valley courts on Monday afternoon 
and white-washed the E-town quintet by 
a 7-0 score. Not one of the seven 
matches went into three sets and not one 
set went over six games. 

Captain Donmoyer again set the pace 
for the Valleyites by defeating his man

Captain Wood and his men tallied in 
every inning but the second, fourth, 
and seventh, while the Halasmen were 
shut out from the fourth inning on un- 
til the end of the game. 

Boran was the big gun for Lebanon 
Valley, both at bat and afield. The 
flashy second baseman found Shaffner 
for three hits, including a triple, while 
he erred once in twelve chances. Be- 
sides his three hits, he walked three 
times and made three runs. 

Arndt scored a run for Lebanon Val- 
ley in the first inning. He walked and 
then scored on a sacrifice by Williams. 

The Dragons also scored in this in- 
ning. Ralston gained first on a single 
over third, going to third on Johnson's 
single to left and scoring on Potter's 
single past short. The second inning 
was scoreless for both teams while Leba 
non Valley scored one in the third as 
did Drexel. Boran walked with one out, 
advanced to third on Williams' single 
and came home when Barthold gained 
first on Burns' error. 

Drexel's two tallies came when Rals- 
ton walked, Johnson reached first on a 
fielder's choice, reached third on Pot- 
ter's fly to center and came home as 
Reynolds reached first due to an error 
by Arndt. Reynolds scored when Kean 
reached first on Rust" s error. 

The fourth inning was scoreless for 
Lebanon Valley but the Dragons' guns 
boomed as she scored three runs, but 
after that, her bats were silent. Burns 
tripled; Fleming walked; Burns was out 
trying to steal home. Fleming advanced 
to third as Shaffner got on, due to a 
fielder's choice; and scored when Boran 
miscued Ralston's bingle to short. John- 
son struck out, Pocter walked, putting 
a man on first and third. Ralston scored 
on KraybilPs error off Reynold's pop 
fly to third. Kean ended the inning by 
going out at first. This ended the Drag- 
on scoring. 

The next inning, the fifth, was Leba- 
non Valley's big inning, four runs be- 
ing scored in this canto by the Valley- 
ites. Boran, Williams, Barthold, and 
Whiting came in home in this inning. 
Three hits, helped along by two Dragon 
errors, accounted for the barrage of 
Lebanon Valley markers. The Mylin- 
men then scored another marker in the 
sixth, one in the eighth, and one in the 
ninth inning.

Day Students Again 
Win Over Lebanon 


Fake Aids and Abets By Masterly 
Receiving - - King Hits 


The Lebanon Valley day students 
nosed out the South Lebanon high 
school nine by the score of 8 to 7, in a 
game played at Lebanon on Tuesday 
afternoon. This happens to be the sec- 
ond engagement played between these 
teams, with the day students emerging 
victorious in the first combat by the 
score of 3 to 2. 

Frantz and Fake formed a strong 
battery for the day students, with Frantz 
tightening in the pinches, to hold the 
opposing team in check. He was aided 
by the peppery Fake, whon handled his 
deceptive deliveries with the mastery of 
a Cochrane.

mation took on the shape of a figure 
eight still in a single row; finally a huge 
circle was formed, taking up the entire 
floor space. Enclosed within its con- 
fines Max and Louise danced a few steps 
of the number, until they were joined 
by the rest of the dancers. 

The promenade itself was quite a bit 
different — the special orchestral ar- | 
rangement and the procession carried 
out in single file. In all respects we 
must give the Juniors credit for their 
originality. One must confess that the 
Juniors as a group — and of course as 
individuals — have showed their clever- 
ness through the various interesting and 
novel dances which they have sponsored 
throughout the past year. Whether their 
success is due in part or entirely to their 
talented and hard-working officers and 
committees cannot be definitely stated, 
but, nevertheless, all in all, they should 
be given a great deal of credit for their 
excellent cooperation towards making 
the prom a huge success. They are pat-

ting themselves on the back, but they 
are certainly justified in their pride. 

Dan Gregory with his twelve men, all 
rather young, reasonably attractive, 
dressed in "green" suits, made a pleas- 
ant background for the dancers. Not to 
be entirely eclipsed by the colorful prom- 
enade, Gregory put forth a special ef- 
fort in presenting a few novel numbers. 
His fat man, name unknown, as enter- 
tainer of the evening distinguished him- 
self in "I Love Mountain Music" and 
"Goofus." "Plumpy" was not a very 
intelligent figure perhaps, but an amus- 
ing one. 

Many alumni returned for this de- 
lightful dance — "to view the situation 
waste and wild" and were gladly wel- 
comed back by their old acquaintances. 
There were also quite a few strange 
faces present — non-campus participants 
— friends of the various students. 

Among the faculty members and 
friends present — both as chaperones 
and participators in the evening's enter- 
tainment were: Dr. and Mrs. Wallace, 
Dr. and Mrs. Stevenson, Dr. and Mrs. 
Struble, Dr. and Mrs. Wagner, Mrs. Mary 
Green, Miss Moyer, Miss Lietzau, Miss 
Myers, Miss Janet Miller, Professor 
Stokes, and Dr. and Mrs. Pond.

Donmoyer Wins, 6-1, 6-0 

Captain Claude Donmoyer and his 
Lebanon Valley tennis team journeyed 
to Gettysburg Tuesday and took their 
second straight win in as many days, 
when the Gettysburg Bullets were sub- 
dued 6 matches to 1. 

Nye, playing second man for Leba- 
non Valley, lost his match but not be- 
fore he had taken it into three sets. 
Lantz was the only other Valley net- 
man who was threatened with defeat, 
but finally won out in the last set by 
taking it, 7-5.

power. The routine of life is merely 
existence. But beyond that life has great 
possibilities of meaning. Confident and 
assured living is offered by Jesus Christ. 
He constitutes the power to help one 
rise to the desires of one's best self. The 
second life necessity is a great ideal. 
Life can only have the most meaning 
when there is a great deal at its center, 
and the person of Christ is the only one 
capable of filling that need. The last 
life necessity that Rev. Ellis discussed 
was that of a sensitive spirit which also 
is found only in the character of Jesus 
in perfection. Callousness is not sophis- 
tication as is often inferred. One needs 
to be sensitive to the world around, to 
the other man's conscience, to the world 
suffering and need, and to one's influ- 

In one of the early sessions of the 
conference, Walter M. Wood, who has 
been in Y. M. C. A. work for many 
years, discussed the "Message and Work 
of the Y. M. C. A." His presentation of 
th subject was very unique. He first 
listed the fundamental institutions of 
life: Home, school, church, civic life, 
vocation, and recreation. He then 
showed how the personality is developed 
by each of these respectively in: fellow- 
ship, development, inspiration, coopera- 
tion, self -investment, and self -recovery. 
The perfect personality will be developed 
equally in each of these fields. The by 
diagram Mr. Wood showed how these 
personal powers may be used. They may 
be used as a miser cares for his money. 
This results in a self-centered life. Or 
they may be used where they are not 
needed, which is a life of carelessness. 
But they are used to advantage when 
they are invested in service, which is a 
life of outreaching influence and self- 
sacrifice. Then Mr. Wood pointed out 
the relation of the "Y" to these various 
factors of development in a man's life. 
It is the purpose of the association to 
foster balanced development by making 
additions where they are necessary and 
adjusting things which are over-empha- 
sized. The organization also attempts 
to direct the investment of the personal 
powers. It helps to create intellectual, 
physical, spiritual, and social powers 
enough for the needs of the self and 
then a little more for the needs of the 
other person. This surplus Mr. W ood 
called culture. One's personality or cul- 
ture consists of the amount of surplus 
development over one's own personal 

The conference was opened as usual 
with a campfire service the first evening, 
at which refreshments were served, and 
a very fine talk was given by one of the 
students, Leroy Brininger, retiring presi- 
dent of the association of the Albright 
College campus. Throughout the entire 
time there, certain discussion groups 
were interspersed in the schedule in 
which practical plans and instructions 
for association activities on the campus 
were discussed. The final service was a 
most impressive communion service for 
the delegates of the conference which 
was held in one of the churches of the 
town, and which was conducted by Rev. 
Ellis. Rev. Ellis was also assisted by 
Chester Goodman of Lebanon Valley, 
and Leroy Brininger of Albright. The 
newly elected officers of the State Stu- 
dent Council were installed at' this Sun- 
day morning service. The retiring offi- 
cers of this council: Chester Goodman, 
president; Kermit Stover, vice-president; 
Leroy Brininger, secretary, and Carl 
Koch, treasurer, were replaced by Leroy 
Brininger, president; Allan Ranck, vice- 
president; Harold Rowe, secretary, and 
Walter Miller, treasurer. 

The delegates who attended the whole 
or part of the conference from Lebanon 
Valley were Chester Goodman, Allen 
Steffy, Clair Hitz, Robert Cassel, Fred 
Lehman, Richard Walborn, and Allan 

(Continued from Page One) 
The precision which the performers dis- 
played and the expression which they 
injected into the numbers gave ample 
indication of the further treats to come. 

The initial appearance of Mr. Scho- 
field displayed his voice in Italian and 
French numbers, "Vittoria, Vittoria," 
by Carissimi; "Aria from Simone Boc- 
canegra — II lacerato spirito" by G, 
Verdi; "L' Angelico," a Breton folk- 
tune, and "Le Cor," by Flegier. A per- 
fect command of the foreign text and 
a voice that could do full justice to the 
beauty of the selections won for Mr. 
Schofield the hearty applause of the 

Mrs. Bender and Mr. Campbell fol- 
lowed in the first movement of Schu- 
mann's "Concerto in A Minor," a class- 
ic in which the piano appeared in espe- 
cial prominence and in which Mrs. 
Bender showed clearly an exceptional 
mastery of technique. Mr. Campbell at 
the organ displayed the voices of the 
instrument in a highly sympathetic 

Mr. Schofield appeared next with the 
numbers, "Birds in the High Hall Gar- 
den," by Sommerville, and "O Lord, 
What a Morning," a negro spiritual ar- 
ranged by Henry Burleigh. Probably 
the first person ever to sing Burleigh's 
arrangement of the famous spiritual, 
the New York artist well displayed his 
exceptional mastery of its characteristic 

After singing German's "Rolling 
Down to Rio," to the huge delight of 
the audience, Mr. Schofield generously 
obliged with three encores, "Passing 
By," by Purcell; "Off to Philadelphia," 
by Haynes, and the old English folk 
song, "Drink to Me Only With Thine 

Mrs. Bender and Mr. Campbell com- 
pleted the recital with Joseph W. Clo- 
key's "Symphonic Piece," consisting of 
Dialogue, Romance, Scherzo, Inter- 
mezzo, and Fugue. Here the voices of 
the instruments blended in especially 
happy manner, with Mrs. Bender's sati- 
ny legato scarcely distinguishable from 
the sustained notes of the organ. 

Quite noteworthy was the remarkable 
fortitude and musicianship displayed by 
Mrs. Bender throughout the recital, as 
she accompanied Mr. Schofield in his 
difficult numbers besides appearing in 
her regular capacity of soloist. 

Mr. Campbell delighted the assembled 
music lovers with his accurate pedal work 
and the beautiful way in which he 
showed the qualities of the organ's solo 

The conservatory can well be proud 
of having had the services of Mr. Ed- 
gar Schofield in this recital, as he is 
well known in American musical circles 
and has appeared in the highest forms 
of concert work. It was only through 
the personal efforts of Mrs. Mary Green 
that Edward Johnson, famed Metro- 
politan star and a friend of Mrs. Green, 
secured Mr. Schofield for the evening.

Quittie Delivery 

Date Almost Sure 

The editor and business manager of 
the 1934 Quittapahilla have announced 
that, due to delays in early spring be- 
cause of finances, the book will not ap- 
pear on May Day, as has occurred in 
the last few years, but will come out a 
week or ten days later. 

Almost all of the book is printed and 
very little remains to be done. Delivery 
by May Day could have been accom- 
plished with a possibility of sacrifice in 
quality, but rather than have a "rush 
job," the staff has decided to spend the 
extra week in final checking. At pres- 
ent, the "Quittie" officials are awaiting 
word from the publishers as to the exact 
date of delivery. This information will 
appear in next week s La Vie Colle 

Another item which influenced the 
Quittapahilla staff in delaying the pub- 
lication is the inclusion of late adver 
tisement copy.

There will be something to hold the 
attention of the visitors the entire day, 
for at 9 o'clock in the morning the 
local tennis team will play St. Joseph's 
of Philadelphia. Then, after the pa- 
geant, Lebanon Valley will meet its arch 
rival, Albright, in a baseball game on 
the athletic field. 

The theme of the May Day pageant 
will be "Sleeping Beauty." During the 
course of the events, the audience will 
see the crowning of Marion Kruger as 
the May Queen. The coronation cere- 
monies will be followed by a series of 
dances, culminating in the May Pole 
dance, with members of the Junior class 
participating. Participants in these vari- 
ous dances have been practicing daily, 
and expect to have their dances perfect- 
ed by Saturday. A wide variety of cos- 
tumes among the groups will help to 
make the whole affair very colorful. 

An admission fee of thirty-five cents 
will be charged those entering the 
grounds. There will be no extra charge 
for bleacher or chair seats. The rule of 
"first here for the best seats" will apply 
to the spectators.

NO. 6 

66th Anniversary 
Celebration Held 
By Philokosmians 


Professor Todd and His College 
Ramblers Play At Lnformal 

The rainy weather of the past week- 
end, although it caused :he postpone- 
ment of the May Day program, could 
not mar the observance of the sixty- 
sixth anniversary of the Philokosmian 
Literary Society. For, in spite of in- 
clement weather, the celebration of 
Philo's anniversary was a success in 
every way. 

Friday evening, May 5, was the first 
event of the affair. On that evening 
Philo presented its annual play to a 
host of faculty, students, alumni, and 
friends, who completely filled the Engle 
Conservatory for the program. The pre- 
liminary part of the program was given 
over to Rev. Wade S. Miller of the 
class of '27, who delivered the invoca- 
tion, and to Samuel D. Ulrich, anni- 
versary president of Philo, who gave 
the welcoming address. 

The feature of the evening was the 
presentation of Oliver Goldsmith's de- 
lightful comedy, "She Stoops to Con- 
quer." This five-act play, although of 
old English origin, nevertheless an- 
swered the purpose of clean, amusing 
entertainment, and upheld the Philo 
tradition successfully by presenting only 
the best works in the English language. 
The many favorable comments from the 
audience at the close of the play indi- 
cated that the play was thoroughly en- 
joyed, and that the committee in charge 
of the play had chosen wisely. 

Individually, and as a group also, the 
cast turned in a commendable perform- 
ance. Parts of the play which seem 
awkward or unusual to modern aud 
ences were handled successfully and 
were sufficiently convincing to maintain 
the interest. However, much of th 
credit for the success of the play as a 
whole must go to Dr. Paul A. W. Wal 
lace, whose capable directing helped 
the actors out of many difficulties. This 
Goldsmith comedy was another of his 
m any achievements in this particular

The Life Work Recruit group of Leb- 
anon Valley College was addressed at 
its meeting Thursday, May 4, by Rev. 
H. E. Miller. In his informal talk, Rev. 
Miller dealt rather particularly with 
problems concerning individuals of the 
group he was addressing. He outlined 
the qualities of such an individual in 
regards to his life-work as conviction, 
courage, and consecration. A person 
must form specific ideas and beliefs 
concerning things, although jumping to 
conclusions is an undesirable extreme. 
Having formed such definite beliefs, the 
individual must possess and cultivate 
the courage and fortitude to remain 
firm in them. But no less important is 
his necessity for consecration. Conse- 
cration implies the individual's allegi- 
ance to and reliance upon someone 
greater and more powerful than him- 
self. All these characterize the Chris- 
tian worker's relation to himself, to his 
fellowman, and to his God. 

The Life Work Recruits were pro- 
foundly impressed by the Lebanon min- 
ister's address, particularly since many 
in the group received inspiration rela- 
tive to their chosen life work.

Philos Hold Spring 
Formal In Lebanon 


Al Hollander's Accomplished Or- 
chestra Provides Music For 
Initial Affair 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
held its first spring formal dance on 
Saturday evening, May 6, in the ball- 
room of the Hotel Weimer, Lebanon. 
This dance was the concluding event in 
the two-day observance of the sixty-sixth 
anniversary of Philo. About thirty-five 
couples and a group of faculty members 
in addition were present at the affair. 
Music for dancing was furnished by Al 
Hollander and his orchestra from York. 

The ballroom itself made an attrac- 
tive appearance, with streamers of blue 
and gold, Philo's colors, draped be- 
tween chandeliers. Beautiful, vari-col- 
ored evening gowns, white flannels and 
dark coats, all added to the colorfulness 
of the event, and were contrasted with 
the dark suits which the orchestra mem- 
bers wore. The whole scene was one of 
animation, life, and color. 

All that was needed to make the eve- 
ning enjoyable was a good orchestra. 
And Philo certainly had it in Al Hol- 
lander's band. From the first to the very 
last piece the orchestra played with the 

(Continued on Page 3, Column 5) 

When things looked pretty disappoint- 
ing on Saturday, the ever-dependable 
band came to the rescue with a concert 
of lively numbers. Although rain ruined 
the original plans for the day, :he band 
was called upon to entertain ihe large 
number of alumni and guests present 
on the campus. 

The presidents of the "Y's" and Pro- 
fessor Rutledge did some rapid work to 
assemble the widely-scattered members 
of the band, to get the music ready, and 
to make necessary announcements. The 
long distant operator was keot busy 
for several hours, calling back the men 
who had gone home, and getring in 
touch with the many day students in the 
band. Finally, with almost all the musi- 
cians in their places, the unscheduled 
concert began at three o'clock in Engle 
Hall. Smiles displaced the dejected 
looks of disappointment on the f.ices of 
the visitors as the program progressed. 
Everyone's spirits were raised and the 
band and its director received another 
volley of praise. The day was saved, 
and in spite of the rain, everyone was 

The extemporaneous program opened 
with "Washington Post," a snappy Sou- 
sa march. A selection from "Tfnnhau- 
ser," by Wagner, was the second num- 
ber. As an encore, the familiar "On 
Wisconsin" (Purdy) was played. 

Mr. Leslie Saunders then delighted 
everyone with a beautiful trombone solo, 
"Thoughts of Love," by Pryor. As an 
encore, Mr. Saunders played "T he Gyp- 
sy Love Song," by Herbert. 

The band's next offering was a selec- 
tion from Luigini's "Ballet Egyptien." 
This finely-played number was followed 
by the encore "Our Director," by Pige- 
low. "La Golondrina" was the next 
number. The old favorite, "Stars and 
Stripes Forever" (Sousa) followed. The 
stirring "American Patrol," by Mea- 
chem, and Sousa's "U. S. Fiel i Artil- 
lery" were presented after that. 

Mr. Dale Roth then sang two solos, 
playing his own guitar accompaniments. 
His well-received numbers were "Casey 
Jones" and "Home on the Range." 

"Loin du Bal" (Guillet) and Sousa's 
"Semper Fidelis" followed, and then 
came the clever "Trombone Toboggan" 
by Weber. This number raised many 
smiles in the audience. The last num- 
ber was the Lebanon Valley College 
alma mater.

May Day or the Story of the Flood 

Weeks of weary and faithful prac- 
tises were brought to a close with the 
final celebration of May Day. Saturday 
dawned cold, dreary, and damp. Rain, 
rain everywhere, and not a dry spot on 
the campus. There was no retreating. 
The crowds had gathered from miles 
around, the forty-eight states were well 
represented. With the crowds jeering 
lustily the procession began. Well 
equipped with overshoes, galoshes, rain 
boots, mackintoshes, hip-boots, oilskins, 
trench coats, and umbrellas, the May 

Court hurriedly tripped across the 
campus to the gorgeous throne — perched 
high and dry under a dripping awning 
stretched across two trees. 

"Freddie" Morrison, the able attend- 
ant, protected our lovely queen with a 
huge lavender umbrella. Together they 
crossed the huge expanse of muddy 
campus, while the participants knelt on 
Mother Earth, half covered by the ooz- 
ing slime, saluting their superior and 
her companions. The music from the

Lavanture and Johnson Take Lead Roles 
In Tale of Man Who Thought He 
Was In An English Inn 


On Friday evening, May 5, the Philokosmian Literary Society in the 
celebration of its sixty-sixth anniversary produced before a large and 
appreciative audience Oliver Goldsmith's never-old comedy, "She Stoops 
to Conquer". The curtain rising on the first act disclosed a set un- 
usually attractive. A fine old gate-leg table and other period pieces 
reproduced effectively the atmosphere of an eighteenth century country 
house. A fireplace in one corner of the room, by an ingenious device, 
actually succeeded in looking warm. 

The cast as a whole entered into the play with enthusiasm. Each 
player seemed to be living his part, while the audience shared with the 
actors the comedy of the situations and the cleverness of the lines Ihe 
costumes of the men as well as those of the girls were exceedingly 

♦ attractive, and they were worn with 
grace and assurance. There were no 
slips discernible in the production of the 
play. The actors knew their lines : the 
stage business was carefully worked out 
and unobtrusive, and the action of the 
play moved with the deftness and pre- 
cision which we have learned to expect 
of plays on this campus. 

Miss Gloria Lavanture, in the part of 
Kate Hardcastle, did a very good piece 
of work. She was beautiful in the love- 
ly silk gown in which she was attired 
when she first met, and dazzled, poor, 
bashful Marlow, and she was bewitching 
in the maid's costume to which "she 
stooped to conquer" his invincible shy- 
ness of young ladies of the better class. 
Miss Lavanture's performance was note- 
worthy throughout for charm, verve, 
confidence and stage presence. 

Young Marlow, ably portrayed by

Glee Club Presents 
First Radio Concert 


Roth, Elser, and Bonanni Are Solo- 
ists With Rutledge-Coached 

The Glee Club presented the first pro- 
gram of a series of half hour radio 
broadcasts to be given by the faculty and 
students of Lebanon Valley College. 
The broadcast was introduced from sta- 
tion WCOD in Harrisburg, on Monday 
evening at 9:15 D. S. T. 

The program opened with "My 
Dream of Love" by Liszt. The entire 
club, directed by Professor Rutledge, 
sang at its best, and the reception here 
in Annville was splendid. Mr. Dale 
Roth then sang Coate's beautiful "Bird 
Songs at Eventide," as a tenor solo. Mr. 
Roth seemed perfectly at home before 
the microphone. He sang with a self- 
confidence and ease that added much to 
the beauty of his full, rich tones and 
his fine interpretation. 

The club then sang two selections 
from its a capella group — "O Bone 
Jesu" and "Matona, Lovely Maiden." 
The blend of voices in these numbers 
was reproduced excellently. "Czardas," 
by Monti, was the difficult violin solo 
that Miss Martha Elser next played. The 
number was played in true Elser style. 
Miss Elser's exact intonation, the well 
played harmonica, and her marked ex- 
pression produced a charming effect. 

The majestic number, "The Heavens 
Resound," by Beethoven, and the rol- 
licking "Hunting Song" by Koutz were 
the next delightful offerings by the glee 
club. The calls and echoes in the latter 
song were most realistic and effective. 

Miss Matilda Bonanni's soprano solo 
was the jolly Italian song, "II Bacio" by 
A.rditi. Miss Bonanni sang in an easy, 
natural way. 

The closing number was the song 
based on Psalm 137, "By Babylon's 
Wave" by Gounod. The full club sang 
this last song.

Varsity "L" Club 
Elects Its Officers; 
Will Hold Dance 

On Monday evening the Varsity "L" 
men met in a business session for the 
purpose of electing officers for the next 
year. The honor of presidency was con- 
ferred upon Carroll Sprenkle, a varsity 
football and basketball player. The 
vice-presidency went to Pete Kandrat, 
a football man, and the office of secre- 
tary-treasurer was given to Frank Boran, 
who plays football and baseball. 

The club also outlined plans for a 
dance to be held this Saturday, May 13, 
in Lebanon at either the Colonial ball- 
room or the Hotel Weimer. The music 
for this dance is to be furnished by Jack 
Todd and his College Ramblers. 

The lettermen discussed the eligibility 
of certain members of the tennis team 
to become members of the organization, 
but the question remained unsettled and 
the club has not fully decided upon 
those men who shall be permitted to

THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1933 



During the past week-end, when rain 
ruined the elaborate plans for Lebanon 
Valley College's annual May Day cele- 
bration, a large number of visitors were 
faced with an empty Saturday afternoon 
until someone conceived the happy idea 
of an impromptu concert by the col- 
lege band. This again illustrated the 
value of such a musical organization to 
the college, and is another reason why 
every student and alumnus can be proud 
of the band and should give it his active 

The optimism shown in the face of 
very disappointing circumstances rather 
shattered the viewpoint that the Amer- 
ican college student is a typically cynical 
individual. Although the rain poured 
in torrents, the students especially inter- 
ested in the event stifled their natural 
chagrin and went ahead to lay plans for 
an even larger celebration this next Sat- 
urday. Even before the actual perform- 
ance of the May Day pageant, the com- 
mittees in charge have shown their ac- 
tive interest, which should insure suc- 
cess on Saturday. 


One of the drawbacks that accom- 
panies a large day student enrollment 
at Lebanon Valley is the tendency of 
the day students to be separated into a 
distinct group, with little or no contact 
with dormitory students apart from the 
mutual attendance of classes. 

Especially is this true of the male 
day students. Feeling themselves shunt- 
ed apart into a rather crowded room, 
the men can hardly be blamed for some 
conditions that do not appear especially 
desirable to administrative eyes. 

Of course, it is not possible for the 
day student's to be transferred to luxur- 
ious quarters, but the day is not far re- 
moved when more room must be found. 
We suggest that such quarters, if placed 
in conjunction with, or in close prox- 
imity to, the recreation rooms used by 
the dormitory men, would be a means 
of creating closer and friendlier con- 
tacts between dorm and day students, be- 
sides providing the day men with the 
environment they deserve. 

Dr. Lynch is now attending the gen- 
eral conference of the United Brethren 
Church in session at Akron, Ohio. To- 
morrow he will address the conference 
on a subject quite familiar to him — 
"Bonebrake Seminary — a luxury or a 
neceo.-.ity." Dr. Lynch will remain in 
Ohio unri! the close of the programs 
next W ec! nesday. 

On Wednesday, May 3, 1933, at 3:30 
P. M., a son, Clarence Daugherty, was 
born to Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Ulric. 

Mr. and Mrs. Ulric are graduates of 
Lebanon Valley College in the class of 
'27. Mr. Ulric is now preaching at 
Shoemakersville, Penna. 

That all softening, overpowering 
knell, the tocsin of the soul — the din- 
ner bell. — Byron. 

The engagement of Miss Nancy 
Miller Ulrich, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Paul Ulrich of Lebanon, Pa., to Joseph 
Edward Wood of Trenton, N. J., was 
announced recently. Miss Ulrich is a 
graduate of Lebanon Valley College, 
class of '29. She has been a member 
of the faculty of Closter high school for 
several years. 

Mr. Wood is also a graduate of Leba- 
non Valley College, class of '31. He 
has received his master's degree from 
Columbia university. Mr. Wood is a 
physical training supervisor and coach 
at Junior high school No. 4 at Trenton, 
N. J. The wedding will be held in June. 

Prof. O. E. Reynolds attended the 
American conference on education held 
in Borraking's Institute at Washington, 
D. C. The program of the conference 
was "What is new in Education?" The 
conference was attended by the well- 
known leaders in education, college 
presidents, deans, and professors of edu- 
cation. The total attendance was about 
two hundred. 

The leading speakers at the confer- 
ence were Dean McLean of the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota, Dean Judd of the 
university of Chicago, Prof. Norton of 
Columbia university, and Dr. Kelly of 
the Office of Education at Washington, 
D. C. 

On Sunday evening Dr. O. E. Rey- 
nolds addressed the students of the Her- 
shey Industrial school in the Little Thea- 
tre in the Community build : r^ at Her- 
shey. He chose "Teaching as a Career" 
for the subject of his address. 

Impromptu Drama 

At Friendly Hour 

An unusual program was arranged 
for Friendly Hour last Sunday evening. 
The object of the program chairman 
was to suggest ways for making use of 
spare time this summer. With Rae An- 
na Reber playing the accompaniments, 
the girls sang all types of familiar songs 
— sacred and secular. The eighteenth 
century play, "The Maid's Tragedy," 
by Francis Beaumont and John Fletch- 
er, was discussed. The settings were 
planned and arranged, the parts as- 
signed and without previous practice 
the play was enacted. Those who work 
with children may find this plan useful 
in providing summer entertainment. 



(Continued from Page One) 
Miss Ruth Bailey played the piano 
accompaniments to all the numbers. 
Her splendid work is to be commended, 
as is the work of all the club members 
and their director. The broadcast was 
a huge success. Surely, Lebanon Valley 
College is receiving a splendid adver- 
tisement from this series of broadcasts. 
Next Monday evening, May 15, the 
band will broadcast a thirty minute pro- 
gram from station WCOD in Harris- 
burg. The time will be 9:15 D. S. T. 


A couple of stories hot from the 
campus will open up the line this week. 
The first one springs from the well of 
stories — History 36. They were discuss- 
ing the poor reform in England. It 
seems that some of the capitalists (yes, 
they had the classes and the masses 
then, too) thought that the working 
people in England should make a habit 
of eating more oatmeal, which was 
cheap, as the Scotch did. An English- 
man, in defense, raised Johnson's defi- 
nition of oats — "in England what they 
feed to horses, and in Scotland what 
they feed to men." Some Scotch wit 
immediately sprang to the defense of 
his country by stating, "That's why Eng- 
land has such fine horses and Scotland 
such fine men!" Let's all neigh! 

Stories number two and three are a 
product of the reception of the Glee 
Club broadcast, as it came over the 
radios in North Hall. They tell of a 
certain Sophomore who had an eminent 
violinist to Philo this past week-end. 
When the young lady played her charm- 
ing violin solo on Monday night, said 
romantic romeo hugged the speaker of 
Werner's radio set. "In the spring a 
young man's fancy. . . ." 

Beaver was listening to the program 
in the "Y" room. He sat perfectly quiet 
for some time. Then the announcer 
stated that Dale Roth would sing a tenor 
solo. Beaver bolted suddenly and start- 
ed up the stairs. "Where are you go- 
ing?" someone asked. "Why," an- 
swered Beaver, "I'm going upstairs to 
bring Dale down to hear it!" And they 
roast peanuts! 

They say that Muhlenberg college has 
a tract of land which it allots to its fac- 
ulty for gardening purposes. They and 
Henry Ford. Perhaps Lebanon Valley 
should try the same. Then some of the 
professors could get into a few beauti- 
ful arguments over the relative merits 
of their radishes and pumpkins as com- 
pared with those of the other right hon- 
orable doctors. Then imagine the vari- 
ous portraits of "The Man With the 

After all the great Shaar's yelling, 
After all the trodden toes, 
The gloom seemed just dispelling, 
And then, by George, it rained! 

We had all our rooms dressed 

Our bookshelves all set trim, 
We were ready quite completely, 
And then, by George, it rained! 
We'd had our gowns so starched 

and prim, 
Our flannels newly pressed, 
The bunch of us were full of vim, 
And then, by George, it rained! 

Of our dances we were dreaming, 
Flitting 'cross the green so light. 
With sheer joy we felt like scream- 

And then, by George, it rained! 

But we'll have our coca-cola stand, 
We'll have our queen and court, 
The weather will be surely grand — 
Unless, by George, it rains! 

The new power lawn mower created 
a sensation on the campus. How proud 
the salesman seemed to feel, strutting 
along behind the little puddle-jumper. 
And how happy it made some people 
to follow it around. 

We nominate for the Hall of Fame: 
The corner of the campus between the 
Ad Building and the Library. If is the 
prettiest spot when the trees have leaves. 
Kit Mowrey's optimism on Saturday. At 
9:30 she still had hopes that it would 
clear. The Philo play cast for making 
it five dramatic hits for the campus this 
year. Sammy Ulrich for his particular 
portrayal. You missed your calling, 
you Frankenstein, you.

The scenery for the production was 
laid principally in a room in Hardcas- 
tle's house. There were only two excep- 
tions, — one in the second scene of Act 
1, which took place in an ale house, and 
again in the second scene of Act 5, 
which took place before the red curtain. 
In the other scenes there was a neat, 
well-arranged set of furniture. A fire- 
place of old English type, a plain set- 
tee, a table, a sideboard, and several 
chairs made an effective background for 
the action. Color was supplied by the 
variously colored costumes and wigs, 
which ranged from black to pink, and 
which formed an excellent contrast with 
the stage properties. 

At the conclusion of the play, the 
audience adjourned to the alumni gym- 
nasium where the usual reception took 
place. Philo served its guests with cake 
and ice cream, and shortly afterward:, 
dancing began to the strains of music 
from Jack Todd and his College Ramb- 
lers. Dancing and bridge were in order 
for the rest of the evening until the soft 
tune of "I Love You Truly" announced 
the end of the evening's celebration.

Shakespeare Players Coming Wednesday 

Shaw's Newest Book 
Receives Attention 
Of La Vie Critic 


Although Mr. Shaw's original scheme 
W as to write another play, his new piece 
f work took on the form of a biting 
satire directed both at the fundamen- 
talist and the scientist. This fabrication 
has provoked and will encounter much 
furious discussion from all its readers. 
Much like Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Prog- 
ress " "The Adventures of the Black 
Girl in Her Search for God" are set 
forth in allegorical form dealing with 
the changing conception of God from 
the time of Noah to the present. Shaw 
presents the insane practise of continu- 
ally taking in new ideas without ever 
clearing out the ideas they supersede. 
"The most conspicuous example of this 
is the standing of the Bible on those 
countries in which the extraordinary 
artistic values of the English translation 
has given it a magical power over its 
readers. ... At present, we are at a cri- 
sis in which one party is keeping the 
Bible in the clouds in the name of re- 
ligion, and another is trying to get rid 
of it altogether in the name of Science." 

The fable opens with the conversion 
of the black girl by a missionary who 
had fled from England after jilting six 
clergymen. With her Bible as guide- 
book, the black girl ventures forth in 
her pursuit of God, buoyed by the 
promise that they who seek shall find. 
She meets many in her journey who pre- 
tend either to be her advisor or God 
himself. Armed with a knobberry, it 
more than once stands her in good 

Led by a Mamba snake, she first en- 
counters "a well-built aristocratic-look- 
ing white man with handsome regular 
features, imposing beard and luxuriant 
wavy hair." This is the God of Noah 
who demands the favorite child of the 
black girl to be slain before him as a 
sacrifice; "for I love the smell of newly 
spilled blood." Disbelieving the old 
man's nonsense she bounds toward him 
flourishing her knobberry, but he dis- 
appears. The God of the early books 
of Scripture vanished; the pages of 
Genesis had crumbled. 

Her next meeting is with "an oldish 
gentleman, with a silvery beard, who 
informs her that he is not cruel and 
that he loves to argue." After he has 
admitted creating the world, the black 
8^1 asks him why he has permitted so 
»uch evil. This is Job's God, a great 
advance over Noah's deity, but with it 
al l a very bad debater. He, too, dis- 
appears when the black girl brandishes 
he r stick.

Thames Williamson, author, traveler, 
and lecturer, is visiting in this district 
where he is writing a novel on the Penn- 
sylvania Dutch people. This novel, 
which has been tentatively named "Dev- 
il Come Quick," is to be published this 
fall. The story is based upon the old 
Pennsylvania Dutch proverb, — "when a 
man gets down on all fours, it's easy for 
the devil to ride him." Due ro Mr. 
Williamson's knowledge of this type of 
people, this novel promises to be one of 
the best psychological studies that has 
been published about these people. 
A Tramp In Early Life 

Mr. Thames Williamson was L r rn on 
an Indian reservation near Genesee, 
Idaho, in 1894. He attended high 
school in Spokane, Washington. Here 
he showed no exceptional scholastic 
ability; in fact, he seemed to show less 
than average ability. After graduating 
from high school, he was enrolled at 
the Washington Business Colieg£. He 
hated this; all the routine work discour- 
aged him. In a heroic effort he shook 
off school and decided to become a 

"I bummed along the coast, to 
Southern California. I again de- 
cided to attempt to acquire an edu- 
cation, so I enrolled at the Univer- 
sity of Southern California. After 
two months I gave up in despair 
and ran away to sea, leaving for 
Peru with a gold expedition. I 
found no gold, and returned emp- 
ty-handed but not discouraged. I 
again set out to sea, this time on a 
whaler — to Hawaii. I had intended 
to stop at Japan, but a general 
quarantine forced me to land in 
Siberia. Here life was quite mo- 
notonous and hard. I secured a 
job as cabin boy on a freighter 
bound for Alaska. Luck seemed to 
be against me; a mutiny broke out 
and the whole crew deserted — I with 
them — shortly after we arrived at 

He Made Money At College 
After four years of hardship, and 
roaming around the world, he again de- 
cided to resume his education. At this 
moment he happened to be in Iowa so 
he enrolled in the nearest college, the 
State University. He had exactly nine 
dollars and found it necessary to ac- 
cept odd jobs, since the treasury of the 
university insisted that his tuition be 
paid! Fortunately, he was skilled in 
languages and found many opportuni- 
ties' to tutor. Janitorship, scrubbing 
floors, waiting on tables 1 — all served as 
a means to his end. "Since one suit of 
clothes was the extent of my wardrobe, 
I was forced to forego all social func- 
tions. I didn't care for them. I was 
compelled to use what little spare time 
I had in further adding to my income 
by writing articles and stories for maga- 
zines. In leaving college within three 
years, I had a Phi Beta Kappa key, five 
hundred dollars, an A. B. degree and a 
scholarship to Harvard." 

Arriving at Harvard, Mr. Williamson 
decided to pursue his studies in the field 
of economics. He had been told that 
he was very impractical so he decided 
to take only practical courses. After 
two and a half years of work, during 
which he received his M. A. degree, he 
gave up further research to devote his 
full time to teaching and to the writing 
of text-books. 

Early Writing Merely Exercise 
When Mr. Williamson was asked what 
he thought of creative writing courses 

in college, he replied, "I do not believe 
writing can be taught in colleges. Liter- 
ary clubs and student publications might 
help a prospective writer, but too often 
the members of such organizations are 
chosen not on ability but on general 
popularity with the ruling cliques. For 
example, when I was one of the few 
persons contributing articles to maga- 
zines, I was never asked to join any 
literary clubs; in fact, I was snubbed and 
high-hatted by these groups." Mr. Wil- 
liamson went on to say that the work 
done in these clubs is often worthless 
and immature. "Good poetry may be 
written, but prose fiction only grows 
with maturity. Prose has no prodigies. 
Almost everything written under the 
age of twenty-five is worthless, and 
should be considered merely as good 
exercise. In my case it was economical- 
ly impossible to withhold these early ef- 
forts from publication." 

To the question "What do you 
think of the college Hot-Cha?" Mr. 
Williamson decidedly replied, "Col- 
lege standards are not life stand- 
ards. College students live in a 
world all their own. College peo- 
ple, as a whole, are conceited; they 
think they are able to settle world 
affairs. Big shots in college are the 
nincompoops in life. College brings 
out superficialities, and emphasizes 
false ideals. I would not advise a 
daughter of mine to marry the 
campus lion. He, too, often is the 
least successful in life. It is the 
quiet, sedate student who will 
achieve the greatest success." 

In answer to a query as to how he be- 
came interested in the life of the Penn- 
sylvania Dutch people, he replied that 
he had had it in mind for seven years. 
' I was on my way to Europe when I 
met a man from York. He was from 
the very heart of the Dutch section. I 
became interested. It was at this time 
that publicity was given to the famous 
"hex" murder in York. From then on 
I planned to visit this region as soon 
as possible. 

Definite Schedule for Work 

"How do you acquire your material 
and what are your habits for writing?" 

"I generally select an idea concern- 
ing the decay and decline of individuals 
living in certain territories." All of Mr. 
Williamson's novels strikingly illustrate 
this theory. "Sad Indian" is the story 
of a primitive Indian being absorbed 
by white civilization. Incidentally, "Sad 
Indian" is at present being filmed by 
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer with Ramon No- 
varro as the "Sad Indian." Mr. Wil- 
liamson fears that this novel will go the 
way of all movie material and come to 
a glamorous finale with the hero and 
heroine "walking forth into the dawn 
of a new day." Another theory of Mr. 
Williamson's is that the character should 
be the central theme. "Hunky," a Book- 
of-the-Month selection several years ago, 
brings out' this idea. 

As to his habits of work, he follows 
a strict routine. Every morning he rises 
at 6:15, then breakfasts, at 7:15 he is 
ready for the day's work. He writes 
steadily until 12 o'clock. The rest of the 
afternoon is spent in reading light de- 
tective stories and dime novels. This is 
to divert his mind from his work. Some 
times the work for the next day is 
planned. During a period of strenuous 
work, Mr. Williamson retires every eve- 
ning at 9 o clo ck. He spaces his work 
into chapters; by this method he knows 
just how long it will take to complete a 

"I write five drafts of every nov- 
el. The first is hastily written, pay- 
ing no attention to grammar or 

construction, and usually takes only 
three' days. I then rest, by turning 
to another novel and completing a 
draft in that field. In this way I 
have five or six novels always on 
the go. However, each succeeding 
draft takes much longer to com- 
plete. It is only by the fifth draft 
that I begin to get enthusiastic. 
Here I begin to 'monkey' with the 
characters and plot. I feel that all 
the good comes in this last draft. 
In less serious works, such as juve- 
nile books, I complete it with much 
less time and effort." 

Mr. Williamson sometimes writes a 
complete juvenile story in one month. 
He considers this a form of literary re- 
laxation. His juveniles have been trans- 
lated into many languages and usually 
deal with a boy's adventures in foreign 
countries. His best juvenile is "Opening 
Davy Jones' Locker." 

Is Prolific Writer 

With careful planning, and great ex- 
penditure of energy, Mr. Williamson 
finds that he is able to produce six 
books in one year. Of course, not all 
of these are published. From the time 
of the printing of his first book, eleven 
years ago, he has put out twenty-two 
books. Besides this great output, there 
is still time found to write short stories 
and general articles for magazines. 

"As for gathering material for my 
novels, I usually jot down notes in all 
sorts of places. I usually observe littU 
microscopic details which other people 
usually miss. These are carefully looked 
over and verified. For instance, when I 
came here to write my Dutch novel, I 
tried to observe everything from a farm- 
er's point of view. I paid close atten- 
tion to the crops, weather and condi- 
tions of the land. This detail is worked 
into the story, cleverly and gradually. 
One must be careful not to slap it' in, 
or overload the story with such remarks 
because they are apt to annoy the read- 
er. I always file my notes from former 
travels. For instance, I need not go to 
Mexico to depict a Mexican character 
or setting. As a matter of tact, my 
Mexican novel was concocted in Maine." 

Book Critics Don't Rate 

To the inquiry as to his favorite au- 
thor and book, Mr. Williamson replied 
that writers don't find much lime to 
read, except in that field in which they 
are directly concerned. Writers often 
read other writers' stories to study 
technique. He finds it impossible to 
forget his own technique in consider- 
ing the writings of others. Mr. Wil- 
liamson claims this is the trouMe with 
American critics. They are too often 
would-be novelists who are disappointed 
in their own failure and turn to 'he cri- 
ticising field. They fail to forget their 
own attempted technique in judging the 
works of others. Least of all does he 
read his own writings. They bore him 
and he sees too many faults. 

"What do you think of book clubs?" 

"Book clubs are poor. The hoard of 
judges is a bunch of rummies trying to 
select the best book. They've got to sell 
the book to their customers, therefore 
they select only those authors catering 
to the popular taste. It is no sign of 
genius to have a club select your opus. 
The selection of 'Hunky' was purely an 
accident. A wife of one of che judges, 
in a moment of extreme boredom, picked 
up the manuscript and began to read it. 
It was a bit different and she persuaded 
her husband it was good. Ic came out 
as their next selection, an incident that 
isn't likely to happen again since the 
book didn't click with the members. A

James Hendrickson 
And Claire Bruce To 
Appear in Two Plays 

The Shakespeare Players of New 
York City, a distinguished company, 
specializing in the presentation of plays 
by the bard of Avon, will appear on the 
campus of Lebanon Valley College on 
Wednesday, May 17, in two productions. 

The plays, which will be given in the 
Engle hall, are "The Merchant of 
Venice," to be presented at 3:00 P.M., 
and "Hamlet," which will be presented 
at 8:00 P.M. 

In these two favorite plays, Lebanon 
Valley students will have a chance to 
see James Hendrickson and Claire 
Bruce, both artists noted for sympathetic 
interpretations of Shakespearean plays. 
The general admission charge will be 
forty cents, while students will be ad- 
mitted for thirty cents.

smoothness, polish, and ease of many 
more renowned orchestras. The ten 
pieces in the band were handled by 
capable musicians, and the instrumen- 
tation was well balanced. That insured 
their appeal to the dancers. In fact, 
their attraction was so great that they 
had to play extra pieces in some dances. 

Accompanying the orchestra to Leba- 
non was Miss Charlotte Beitzel, a tal- 
ented "blues" singer. Possessing a low, 
almost masculine, yet mellow and rich 
voice, she delighted the dancers with a 
variety of vocal selections. Miss Beitzel 
sang quite frequently, and her efforts 
were much appreciated if applause 
means anything. Several of her special 
numbers were "Shuffle Off to Buffalo," 
"Meet Me In the Gloaming," "In a Sec- 
ond Hand Store," "Why Can't This 
Night Go On Forever," "Farewell to 
Arms" and "I Love You Truly." These 
and others were much enjoyed. 

Special solo parts taken by the trum- 
pet and trombone players along with oc- 
casional songs by members of the or- 
chestra all added to the variety and suc- 
cess of the dance. From the slowest to 
the fastest tempo, they were always mas- 
ters of their instruments and consequent- 
ly played each type of music in a very 
commendable way. 

The following persons represented the 
faculty at the dance: Mrs. Green, Dr. 
and Mrs. P. A. W. Wallace, Dr. and 
Mrs. G. G. Struble, Dr. and Mrs. P. S. 
Wagner, Miss Gillespie, Miss Kenyon, 
and Professors Rutledge and Campbell. 

The committee who arranged for the 
dance was composed of De Witt Essick, 
chairman, Galen Baugher, and Henry 

Glee Club Appears 
On Chapel Program 

The Glee Club gave the special num- 
bers on the Friday chapel program. 
Everyone enjoyed the short treat which 
the program offered. The beautiful 
"Liebestraum" by Liszt was the first num- 
ber. The part work in this number 
brought out the full richness of the se- 
lection. Next was an a capella group, 
selected from 16th and 17th renturv 
composers. The group included "O 
Bone Jesu," "Lo, What A Branch of 
Beauty" and "Matona, Lovely Maiden." 
In these numbers the splendid harmony 
and blend of voices could be noticed to 
the fullest extent. The popular "Hunt- 
ing Song" by Koutz was the fitting last 
favorite on this program.

Learner Should Read Hacks 

In response to our question, asking 
for advice to beginning writers, he said, 
"Be yourself, not another person! Don't 
imitate! Don't copy! Write your own- 
self on your paper. I always have con- 
fidence in myself and express my own 
opinion. I am never compared to other 
writers. I struggle to attain individual- 
ity! It is for this reason that I don't 
like collaboration and prefer working 

"Read poor writers to learn how 
to write, because in perfect work 
you don't find poor construction, 
but in trash things are so poorly 
done you can see the mistakes and 
improve on them. Read drug store 
literaXjure. There you can easily 
find the gaps. 

"A professional writer must have 
ideas running through his head all the 
time. One idea always leads up to an- 
other. Even on my return trip from 
New York to Lebanon, while sitting in 
the train at least five major ideas flashed 
through my mind for novels lint 1 ' I got 
a headache. That's foolish, because I 
already have too many ideas. 

"Work! Work! Work! Don't write 
just when you feel like it. a plugger. 
I'd never write if I waited for divine in- 
spiration. Besides, the more work, the 
more ideas! Control everything; be care- 
ful of balance and proportion Polish 
your work until you are sure of excel- 
lent construction. 

"Choose early the t/pe of literature 
you want to write. Once a writer of 
trash, always a writer of trash. Don't 
fall into ruts. If you are in the game 
for the money, hit the hokum notes 
and you'll sell. The commonplace will 
seek you out. After all. the success of a 
book depends on fifty percent style and 
fifty percent subject ma'.ter. The hack- 
writers are popular but they'll never live. 

Williamson No Dramatist 

"The majority don't like my scuff. It 
is too individualistic. Here in America 
we have too many standards and foimu- 
lae; things are shop-worn. Just the op- 
posite exists in Europe. However, Amer- 
ica is raising her standard rapidly.'' 

When drama was discussed, Mr Wil- 
liamson remarked, "I don't try drama. 
I know I couldn't do it. An attempt 
was made to dramatize !< Hunky." "Sad 
Indian" is now being filmed. I have had 
a proposal to write a scenario for Boris 
Karloff. I am undecided as to what 1 
shall do." This led to his discussion of 
the movie colony. 

"Do I like Hollywood? No! It is too 
artificial. They merely scratch the sur- 
face of life. I would rather look at 
Lapps in their natural haunts than at 
screen stars, any day! 

"Garbo? She's good, but hasn't 
had the right stories to display her 
artistic talent. In 'Grand Hotel,' 
she did her greatest work." 

Curious enough, Mr. William- 
son's philosophy corresponds ex- 
actly with Garbo. When asked 
what he thought of publicity hunt- 
ers, he said "I'm a creative artist. 
I want to be alone." 
"Politics? I'm not interested. A 
presidential election to me is nothing 
but a cavalcade; a drama enacted in real 
life. I'm not interested in socialism. 
When I was twenty-eight, I published an 
article against socialism. Socialism is 
the cry of the under-dog. It is made up 
of people with the 'jimmies.' Capital- 
ism came to us through a long process 
of evolution, and that is the best sys- 

Dialect Not Important 

Speaking of his latest novel, Mr. Wil-

Pennsylvania is a rich literary ground, 
one of the best in the United States.

that this district is only three hours from

New York, yet no one writes about it. 
He is so interested in this section that 
he is contemplating return in order to 
complete a second novel. The few 
writers that have considered these peo- 
ple have not treated them in a serious 
manner. They rely mostly on silly dia- 
lect and odd circumlocutions to furnish 
local color. 

The hardest problem facing him was 
to understand the odd inflections used 
by people around here. It is impossible 
to convey this important characteristic 
through misspellings or odd inversions. 
A reputable writer could never depend 
on such a trifle as "wery, wery nice" or 
"lock the door open" to get the real ef- 
fect across to the reader. He must be 
more subtle and clever in his manage- 

Mr. Williamson is an extensive trav- 
elder and told many interesting anec- 
dotes. He was very affable throughout 
the interview and very kindly replied to 
our inquiries. Mr. Williamson gave the 
impression of being extremely nervous, 
as all creative artists are when being 
questioned about their work. His first re- 
sponses were jerky and unnatural; ob- 
viously memorized for convenience in 
meeting interviewers. Later on, this 
nervousness wore off and he chatted 
very gaily of "cabbages and kings." He 
revealed his future travelling plans 
which will carry him through Europe 
and Africa. His first stop will be Lap- 
land where he will complete his present 
work and then begin a new novel in a 
new and totally different style.

for the consideration he gave the

band sounded a bit wet, but with the

conducted to their pile of sea weed by a 
band of mermaids with the Evil Spirit 
in hot pursuit. 

A crown could not possibly save the 
queen's beautiful finger wave, so a rain 
hat was substituted in its place. A most 
impressive ceremony — the coronation 
of a queen with a rain hat. "Long live 
the queen," were the cries raised on all 
sides. Umbrellas and rubbers were tossed 
carelessly aloft. 

The Wise Women, wet to the bone, 
indulged in an interpretive dance, put- 
ting their souls in their movements as 
well as their ankles into the mud. Car- 
rying golden discs — looking and smell- 
ing suspiciously like painted trays, they 
drooped and swayed, swiveled and 
twirled in the mad May gale. Exhaust- 
ed by their motions, they huddled to- 
gether like lost babes in a wood to view 
the remainder of the performance. The 
Scotch dancers filed out in silent rank. 
The bagpipes had water on the knee, 
and the band had forgotten the music. 
Hairy limbs, boney knees, hefty ankles, 
flat feet — all were exposed to the appre- 
ciative bystanders. The kilts swung 
round and round until the dancers had 
dizzily regained their poise. One or 
two fell in a mud hole, while gaily flip- 
ping off the Highland fling. Slopping 
and panting, the Scotch group bowed 
before their sovereign and made their 

The Dutch dancers tripped in, daint- 
ily pointing their rubbered toes as they 
ran. Rubber aprons took the place of 
their stifly-starched white ones. These 
were coy smiling maidens and bashful 
boys — rare specimens for any college. 
The Russian dancers, riding in on their 
thoroughbred Arabian horses, held the 
audience in eager suspense and antici- 
pation while they performed some dar- 
ing and breath-taking stunts. The per- 
formers outshone all former feats by 
their agile and graceful movements hin- 
dered only to a slight degree by the 
heavy mackintoshes and galoshes that 
they wore. 

Not to be outdone by these capricious 
horsemen and women, the Spanish se- 
nors and senoritas clapping their casta- 
nets and shaking their tamborines slid 
on the field knee deep in mire. Wading 
to their positions they twisted about, 
vamping their partners, swirling their 
skirts, whirling around, and bowing to 
the queen. They, too, left the swamp. 
Irish, Chinese, and May Pole dances 
brought this dazzling spectacle to a

close. The Chinese dancers were well 
protected from the rain by their slop- 
ing hats. Occasionally they forgot a 
step, but the audience was too busy ex- 
tricating their overshoes from the mud 
tc notice their deficiency. Especially 
impressive were the May Pole dancers. 
Armed with umbrellas and hip-boots, 
they waltzed around the May Pole — 
gracefully manipulating their parapher- 
nalia and streamers. 

Sleeping Beauty and her manly lover 
were then awakened and were bade to 
live happily ever after. A moji touch- 
ing scene, indeed. The grand finale was 
even more impressive. A barge was con- 
ducted across the marshy campus and 
conducted the queen and her attendants 
to a dry shelter and safety. Tbe crowd 
gingerly picked its way out uf the muck 
and mire, leaving the campus a deserted 
and forlorn spot — grass, earth, and 
water — now one and inseparable.

ly, and to love mercy, and to walk 
humbly with thy God?" Shaw's funda- 
mental quarrel is not with the Bible — 
as one might imagine from a hurried 
reading — his quarrel is with not read- 
ing the Bible aright. 

After encountering the representa- 
tives of the various denominations, a 
Roman legionaire, a conjurer, an Arab, 
and a scientist, the black girl's conclud- 
ing adventure in her search for God 
consists in her meeting an old man in 
a garden — an individual who bears a 
decided resemblance to Voltaire as por- 
trayed by the amusing wood engraving 
with which John Farleigh has decorated 
the volume. The old man counsels her 
to give up the search. "God is at your 
elbow, and He has been there all the 
time; but in His divine mercy He has 
not revealed Himself to you lest too full 
a knowledge of Him should drive you 
mad. Make a little garden for yourself: 
dig and plant and weed and prune; and 
be content if He jogs your elbow when 
you are gardening unskillfully, and 
blesses you when you are gardening 

In the back garden, where they grew 
the vegetables, the black girl found an 
Irishman digging potatoes. No, he was 
not looking for God; God knew where 
to find him if he was needed. The black 
girl and the old gentleman thought the 
Irishman rather a coarse fellow, but he 
was useful and would not go away. 
However, she settles down to a domestic 
life with the Irishman and her charm- 
ing coffee-colored offspring. Becoming 
wrapped up in her new life, she no long- 
er goes forth in search of God, but 
comes to realize "that it is wiser to take 
Voltaire's advice by cultivating her gar- 
den and bringing up her piccaninnies 
than to spend her life imagining that she 
can find a complete explanation of the 
universe by laying about her with a

sorely perplexed Hardcastle. Mr. Ches 
ter Goodman, who had the part f 
Hardcastle, possesses an excellent voice 
and good stage presence. He was con 
vincing in the part and got all the com- 
edy there was out of it. 

Tony Lumpkin, played by Mr. Clyd e 
Mentzer, provided most of the laughs of 
the evening. Not altogether successful 
in the alehouse scene of the first act, he 
warmed to his part as the play progressed, 
and he was excellent in the scenes with 
his tearful and doting mother, Mis s 
Sarah McAdam. Miss McAdam's act- 
ing showed considerable range and was 
commendable throughout. Miss Cath- 
erine Wagner and Mr. H. Algire Mc- 
Faul in the foil roles of Miss Neville 
and Hastings acted with the restraint 
necessary and proper to throw into 
high relief the parts of Miss Hardcastle 
and Marlow. Their performance was 
altogether satisfactory. 

The scrupulous care of Dr. Wallace's 
directing and the loyalty and ability of 
the cast was reflected in the minor parts. 
Some very good comedy was provided 
by Mr. Hardcastle's serving men, played 
by Messrs. Samuel Ulrich, Clyde Magee, 
George Hiltner, Henry Grimm, and 
Charles Daugherty. Miss Ruth Garner 
as Dolly, Mr. Allan Ranck as the land- 
lord, and Mr. Dewitt Essick as Sir 
Charles Marlow all gave smooth per- 
formances. Mr. Essick looked superb 
as an elderly eighteenth century gentle- 

"True comedy, aye there's this thing 
about it 

If it makes the house merry, you never 
need doubt it." 

This play is a good one. The cast 
and audience alike seemed to have a 
good time. If we believed in sumptuary 
legislation, we would sponsor a move- 
ment to compel college dramatic socie- 
ties to put on "She Stoops to Conquer" 
at least once every four years, and we 
should wish for them the same measure 
of success that attended Philo's sixty- 
sixth anniversary.

Still-Life Photos 
And Broadway Type 
In '34 Quittapahilla 


Mystery Surrounds Identity Of 
Most Popular Pair And 
Scholastic Leaders 

While it is customary for modern col- 
lege anuals to possess a distinctive theme, 
the 1934 Quittapahilla has ventured 
somewhat afield by selecting a photo- 
graphic still-life theme as a guiding 

In keeping with the modern spirit of 
the book and the still-life division pages, 
the feature section has been planned to 
include a large proportion of half-tone 
engravings which add a great deal to 
the attractiveness of this section. 

The still-life photos, which mark the 
division and sub-division pages, are of 
bleed-off style, as are the campus views. 
The subjects, which were arranged by 
the art staff of the annual, comprise ob- 
jects familiar to all Lebanon Valley 

The titles of the division pages are 
set in a novel position in a type face 
specially chosen after consultation with 
the printers. This Broadway type, as 
the name implies, is distinctly modern 
in accordance with the spirit of the book. 

The high-lights of the feature section 
include pictures of four members of the 
Senior class, the two outstanding stu- 
dents and the most popular girl and

The College Ramblers with Jack Todd 
directing, furnished a delightful pro- 
gram of dance music at the May Day 
Frolic which was staged in the Colonial 
ball room by the "L" Club of the col- 
lege, on Saturday night, May 13. 

The orchestra's program consisted of 
some of the latest musical hits which 
were played with quite a professional 
finish. Vocal solos were supplied to 
various of the numbers by the director, 
Jack Todd, by Thomas Edwards, by Doc 
Ebbert, by William Gerber, and by John 
Funk. Several trio selections were sung 
by Messrs. Ebbert, Edwards, and Gerber. 
Ramblers In Costume 

As a novelty number, the orchestra 
presented Messrs. Bolton, Koons, and 
Funk in a comedy skit and trio. Mr. 
Bolton was the bashful little boy who 
had to give his recitation before such a 
large audience of strangers. He was 
then joined by Mr. Koons and Mr. Funk 
to form a trio "Little Tommy Brown.' 
The comedy of their dress and of their 
action brought quite a laugh from the 
crowd of dancers on the floor.

According to a report from the sev- 
eral members of the 1934 Quittapahilla 
staff, this year's edition of the year book 
promises to be one of extraordinary in- 
genuity and surprises. The publishers 
report that the book is a beautiful job 
now that they are approaching the com- 
pletion of the work. As usual, there is 
quite an amount of interest and wonder 
about the make-up of the book. 

The edition will be very novel in ap- 
pearance, although it does follow the 
general plan of the books for several of 
the previous years. Reports say that it 
will retain the same general plan with 
perhaps the exception of several combi- 
nations of divisions. There seems to be 
a slight change in athletic and feature 

Modern Decorative Art 

As to design, the opening section as 
well as the decorations throughout the 
book are said to be done in the latest 
French illustrative designing as used by 
some of the modern French publications 
in their regular periodicals and books. 
At any rate, the design will be some- 
thing very novel and interesting for 
Lebanon Valley College year hooks. 

The book this year has specialized 
also in photographic work, for opening 
section and for feature section. Al- 
though this -is nothing particularly new 
and extraordinary, several experiments 
have been tried and have proved quite 
successful. In the first section of the book 
will appear picture's larger than any that 
have ever been placed in any previous 
year book. They are done in the man- 
ner called the "bleeding off" process. 
The pictures have no boundaries and 
extend to the edge of the page slightly 
shaded as they reach the edge. An- 
other feature of the photographic sec- 
tions will be the pictures of still life 
that were secured. The various students 
will have lots of fun attempting to re- 
cognize possessions and articles of their 
own in the pictures that have been 
placed there.

recital was very well attended. 

First on the program was a well- 
played group of piano numbers by Miss 
Ruth Bailey of Reading. Her selections 
were the third movement from MacDow- 
ell's "Eroica Sonata," and the delightful 
"Tango" by Albeniz-Godowsky. Miss 
Bailey's excellent ability at the piano is 
widely known. Her splendid accom- 
panying work was displayed at all the 
Glee Club concerts, in Friday morning 
chapel periods, and with many soloists. 

Mr. Dale Roth, of Biglerville, is an- 
other popular campus artist whose rich, 
fully-trained voice is known to all. Mr. 
Roth's numbers in the Thursday recital 
were Schubert's lovely "By the Seaside" 
and the beautiful love song by Hubin, 
"I Rise from Thoughts of Thee." Miss 
Bailey accompanied Mr. Roth. 

The organ soloist of the evening was 
Miss Ethel Keller of Hummelstown. 
Miss Keller's splendid handling of an 
organ is frequently heard, since she is 
assistant chapel organist. On this pro- 
gram, she played "Cantilene" by Voris, 
and the airy, graceful and fascinating 
"Will o' the Wisp" by Nevin. 

"Berceuse from Jocelyn" by Godard 
was the beautiful violin solo played by 
Mr. Jack Schuler of Lebanon. Mr. Schu- 
ler has a reputation for fine violin play- 
ing, and he certainly lived up to this 
reputation in this number. Mr. Theo- 
dore Walker accompanied Mr. Schuler. 

Miss Bailey's second contribution was 
a group of tone pictures. Griffe's 
haughty "White Peacock," the stubborn, 
amusing "White Donkey" of Ibert, and 
Debussy's "Fireworks," lively and full 
of surprise explosions, were all delight- 
fully played by Miss Bailey. 

Miss Keller then masterfully played 
"Toccata" from "Suite Gothique" by

Publishers Promise 
1934 Quittapahilla 
For May Day Sale 


Manager and Editor of Publication 
Make Statements to 
La Vie 

"The 1934 Quittapahilla prob- 
ably will be here to-morrow eve- 
ning," stated Allen E. Buzzell, bus- 
iness manager of the Junior class 
annual, when interviewed early this 
afternoon regarding the date of ar- 
rival of the long-awaited books. 

Mr. Buzzell went on to remark 
that the book most likely would be 
distributed the following day, Sat- 
urday. The publishers of the annual, 
the Hammersmith-Kortmeyer Co., of 
Milwaukee, have instructed the staff to 
advertise the distribution for Saturday, 
which with fair weather will also be Leb- 
anon Valley May Day. 

When approached on the subject, Ed- 
mund Umberger, editor of the annual, 
remarked, "Whatever may happen, it is 
certain that the books, when placed in 
the hands of the purchasers, will be 

The meaning of Mr. Umberger's 
cryptic statement, while not divulged to 
the press, evidently has something to do 
with one of the modern touches char- 
acterizing the 1934 Quittapahilla. 

Both officials of the "Quittie" staff 
joined in praising the efforts of the 
Hammersmith-Kortmeyer Co., especially 
during the last weeks of printing. The 
executives of the company, who alone 
have seen the finished volume, declare it 
a beautiful piece of work. 

Green Blotter Club 
Holds Last Meeting 


Krumbiegel Discourses On Univer- 
sities — Inkspots Tender Tribute 
To Strubles 

The "Green Blotter Club" met at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. George Struble, 
Thursday evening, May 11. The meet- 
ing was the last one for the organiza- 
tion this year. 

Walter Krumbiegel read a paper on 
the "Rise of the Universities," a lengthy 
dissertation on the life history of the 
modern institution. The work was well 
built and interesting throughout. Mar- 
tha Kreider then read a paper of poems, 
which were, as usual, delightful. Miss 
Kreider's volume of verse, the only one 
so far discovered on the campus, is 
growing in size and quality. 

Club In Critical Mood 

A short description of an emotional 
struggle in "No Man's Land" was pre- 
sented by Jane Shellenberger. The ar- 
ticle was rather roundly criticised as be- 
ing a trifle trite. Too, the subject is not 
one based on first hand information but 
rather one of which the facts are gleaned 
from other books. 

George Hiltner's humorous descrip- 
tion of an electric light was next heard. 
After his reading was finished, several

THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1933 


The "L" Club frolic last week capped 
the climax in a series of formal or semi- 
formal social affairs that has been un- 
paralleled in the history of Lebanon 
Valley College. Emerging from the 
chrysalis stage of social stagnation, L. 
V. C. has marched forward into the 
van, and a calendar similar to the one 
enjoyed during the past year need not 
be compared unfavorably with others 
at similar colleges. 

Four formal society dances, the Junior 
prom, the "L" club frolic, and the seven 
or eight informal affairs in the Alumni 
gym at least form a nucleus upon which 
an attractive and wholesome social pro- 
gram may be built. We look next year 
for continued improvement both in the 
number and calibre of such entertain- 


We, as mortals, are saved from bore- 
dom by an ever-changing world. No 
day is like the predecessor. No year is 
the same as the one before. It is this 
never-constant quality that gives a zest 
to our business of living. The thought 
of what might happen gives us courage 
to struggle. 

The Seniors have spent four years on 
this campus. Of course, they have 
formed many ties which center their in- 
terests here. But ahead is change, op- 
portunity, life. Perhaps, it seems that 
this year there is not much opportunity 
ahead. But there are three hundred six- 
ty-five special offers of opportunity each 
year. Any one of them might be just 
the chance of a life-time for some one. 
Seniors, we hope you grasp them. 

We enjoy having the members of 
your class for friends. We wish that 
we could give to all of you as a com- 
mencement gift a world filled with pros- 
perity and opportunities for new work- 
ers. If it were within our power, such 
would be the case. As it is, we wish you 
the best of luck. We hope that you can 
say that you have received the best that 
Lebanon Valley has to offer its students, 
and that ten years from now we will all 
be proud to stand together and sing 1 — 
"To Thee, Dear Alma Mater." 


As the La Vie staff members have 
not yet attained that apex of jour- 
nalistic enthusiasm which compels 
one to accept martyrdom for the sake 
of the reading public, there will be 
no paper during the week of final 


Anne: "Roosevelt talks about infla- 
tion as a new thing! Why, all the guys 
I've gone around with have had swelled 
heads for years." 

La Vie promises things for next year. 
At least, it's easy to promise before the 
dull and ambitionless period of vacation 
that work will be done in that interim, 
but there are good chances that several 
major changes will be made next fall 
in the various departments of the paper. 

First, is promised a revised style 
sheet, so that homogeneity of news style 
can be obtained to a greater degree. 
Second, a progressive and varied type of 
make-up will be tried. In other words, 
La Vie will be made an exeprimental 
laboratory for approved modern make- 
up methods. 


On Sunday morning Dr. Lynch will 
preach at the First United Brethren 
Church of York; in the evening at the 
Second United Brethren Church. He 
will remain in that city until Monday 
when he will talk to the student body of 
the York high school. 

Tuesday, May 23, Dr. Lynch will be 
the speaker at the father and son ban- 
quet at the Otterbein United Brethren 
Church, Harrisburg. 

On May 25 he will give the address 
at the Myerstown high school com- 
mencement and the following evening 
at the Palmyra high school. On Mon- 
day, May 29, Dr. Lynch will speak at 
the commencement of the Evangelical 
Theological Seminary, Reading. 

Memorial Day our president will give 
the address at the commemoration serv- 
ice 'in Annville. 

Faculty Entertains 
Seniors In Series 
Of Veritable Orgies 

Now that the school year is drawing 
to a close and the Seniors are prepar- 
ing to leave the school forever, several 
of the professors are beginning to real- 
ize their worth. In order to fortify them 
for the ordeal of examinations due next 
week, the Seniors, and a few fortunate 
underclassmen taking Senior courses, 
have been invited to several parties. 

Last Thursday evening, the Conserv- 
atory faculty entertained at a formal 
dance at the home of Dr. and Mrs. 
Bender. All music students were invited 
to attend this affair which proved to be 
one of the most successful of the year. 

Botanists Rusticate 

On Saturday, the botany class was in- 
vited to spend the day at the summer 
cottage of Dr. and Mrs. Derickson at 
Mt. Gretna. After an exhilarating hike 
through the South mountains during 
which the class collected many speci- 
mens, they sat down to a delicious baked 
ham dinner prepared by Prof. Derick- 
son himself. Then the class helped to 
wash and dry the dishes and they all 
trooped out into the mountains again. 
Despite a brief thunder shower they all 
enjoyed themselves thoroughly and se- 
cured many valuable specimens for their 

Dr. Lietzau very pleasantly surprised 
her Senior German class by inviting 
them to a theatre party on Tuesday 
night. She permitted them to choose 
the movie and the vote was unanimously 
in favor of "Elmer the Great," starring 
Joe E. Brown. This was climaxed by a 
party which lasted into the "wee hours" 
at Dr. Lietzau's home. 

The Senior class in American history 
under Dr. Shenk are all invited to his 
home for a party this evening. They 
are all looking forward to a delightful 
time since Dr. and Mrs. Shenk are 
famed for their clever, amusing parties. 


The existence of about 2,000,000 peo- 
ple dwelling on the Bahrein Islands de- 
pends upon the pearl industry. One 
hundred fifty thousand men dived naked 
into shark-infested waters for their 
livelihood. Nearly 500,000 men are en- 
gaged yearly in this pearl fishing. 

The Bahrein Islands, a protectorate 
of Great Britain, form an archepelago 
in the Persian Gulf twenty miles off Al 
Hasa on the Arabian coast. In prepar- 
ing for the spring season of pearl fish- 
ing, every harbor on the Arabian coast 
displays big, high-pooped dhows, the 
boats used in the pearl fishing industry. 
A single dhow carries from 24 to 35 
divers, who dive into the water with a 
basket slung around their necks, and 
remain beneath the water until their 
breath 'is exhausted. Ordinarily, the 
sharks dp not bother these pearl hunt- 
ers. The divers are pulled up to the 
surface with their pearl-laden baskets by 
special ropemen. 

The gulf pearl markets are almost 
invisible. The merchants, who appear 
extremely poor, transport their pearls 
in little knotted, pieces of rags, which 
they bring forth from the many folds 
of their flowing garments. The business 
transactions are held in tiny, little cof- 
fee shops, or in rooms in the thick 
walled Arab houses. These transactions 
amount to many thousands of pounds

Dedication to Be Surprise 

Probably one of the most interesting 
things about the new book will be the 
dedication page. There has been quite 
a large amount of speculation as to 
whom the book will be dedicated, but 
the secret is being kept within the small 
circle of people who know until the cir- 
culation of the book. 

Of necessity this report must be lim- 
ited to the new highlights of the new 
edition, since there would be too many 
features to be discussed in so short a 
space. But these few things give an idea 
of the work and time that has been 
given to its publication and of the value 
of the book to students and friends of 
the school. The whole quality of the 
book can only be appreciated by a pur- 
chase and reading of the book. It prom- 
ises to be well worth the investment. 


Mrs. Pearl S. Buck, the author of 
"Good Earth" and "Sons," has resigned 
as a missionary of the Presbyterian 

Her resignation, which was not com- 
pulsory but voluntary, was inspired by 
her wish to save the Presbyterian Board 
of Foreign Missions any more embar- 
rassment which has been caused by dif- 
ferences of opinion between her and 
church members over some of Mrs. 
Buck's theological views. The board ac- 
cepted her resignation regretfully. 

Mrs. Buck's difficulties began when 
she said that the doctrine that heathen 
races are damned unless they hear the 
Gospel is "a major religion." 

Dr. J. Lassing Buck, the author's 
husband, will return with his wife to 
China. It is reported that Mrs. Buck 
still stands on her expressions of faith. 

Mrs. Buck will continue as a member 
of the Presbyterian Church, although 
her chief critic, Dr. J. Greshom Mach- 
en, condemns the board for not dismiss- 
ing her instead of accepting her resig- 

Two hundred years ago at St. Cyr, 
France, the students were allowed one 
towel a week, one foot-bath a month, 
and three complete baths a year. 

Beloit will pay for gas used by stu- 
dents in commuting when they live not 
less than five miles from the college, and 
not more than thirty. 

Because jobs are hard to find, 268 
graduating seniors at Temple have been 
offered free tuition if they wish to con- 
tinue their studies. 

The Frederick A. Stokes Company 
reports that book sales are picking up 
after the drop following the bank mora- 
torium early in March. 

Doubleday, Doran have formed a 
new publishing department, Outdoor 
Books, under the direction of H. A. 
Stevenson, formerly manager of the 
outdoor department of the Macmillan 
Company. Book-sellers are providing a 
special new list of books on sports and 
outdoor life, the third of the American 
Book Councillor series of subject book- 
lets started this spring by the Joint 
Board of Publishers and Book-sellers. 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
met in a short business session Tuesday, 
May 16, after lunch. The meeting was 
in charge of the president, Harry Zech. 
Various committee chairmen were called 
upon for reports, and all anniversary 
committee reports proved to be quite 
satisfactory. A rising vote of thanks 
was given to Miller Schmuck, who spent 
much time and effort in building the 
fireplace used in Philo's play, and who 
helped in arranging the other stage 
properties. Several items of new busi- 
ness were considered briefly, and then 
deferred to a business session which will 
be held Friday evening, May 19. 


Delta Lambda Sigma traveled to Chi- 
cago in its programme at the regular 
meeting held on Friday, May 12. Trula 
Koch was in charge and acted as guide. 
Gem Gemmill opened in the programme 
by reading one of Sandburg's poems 
about Chicago. "Chicago Sal," Estelle 
Delgado, did a dance. Gloria La Van- 
ture was "Chicago May" and Ruth Gar- 
ner told about Hull House in Chicago. 
The programme was very interesting 
and was enjoyed by all the Delphians

First May Recital 
Given By Students 


Misses Light, Heckman, Butterwick 
And Summy Appear In 
Initial Concert 

The first of the May recitals was held 
in Engle hall on Tuesday, May 9. These 
recitals are annual occurrences in which 
is displayed the outstanding work done 
throughout the year. 

Miss Sara Light opened the program 
with a well-interpreted rendition of 
Bach's C Major Prelude and Fugue. The 
next number was the violin selection, 
Allegro Moderato from G Minor Con- 
certo by Oscar Reeding, ably played by 
Miss Helen Butterwick. 

Miss Catherine Heckman then pre- 
sented two delightful piano numbers' — 
Romance in F Sharp Minor by Schu- 
mann and "Reflets dans 1' eau" by De- 

A bassoon solo — an old folk song, 
"Theme and Variations," was played 
by Mr. Robert Scheirer. The piano ac- 
companiment for the solo was arranged 
and played by Miss Heckman. 

Miss Helen Summy then beautifully 
sang a group of songs, including three 
Bird Songs by Lehman and "The Night 
Wind" by Farley. Miss Margaret Young 
accompanied Miss Summy. 

Miss Heckman's next offerings were 
"Nocturne" by Debusy, "The Spinning 
Song" by Ganz and Etude in D flat 
major by Liszt. 

Campus Cuts is moronic. Yes, it is. 
A certain junior girl has accused it of 
such and it remains undefended — even 
if said junior did have the discourtesy 
to make such a statement not to the 
writer but to a group at a dinner table, 
also moronic. But one thing might be 
said. In the library "La Vie" keeps a 
locked box for contributions of signed 
criticisms or other material. May we 
suggest that any further comment be 
dropped into said box where the editor 
himself may find out that his reporters 
are getting down in the mental age scale 
(moronic is over-used). Then, perhaps, 
this typewriter-pusher will be demoted 
to the covering of the college calendar. 

Sadly, the prediction that this col- 
umn made in the last line of a poetic 
effort last week, i. e., "Unless, by George, 
it rains," turned out true to a slight ex- 
tent, even if the afternoon did turn out 
beautiful. But one thing we are thank- 
ful for — a good laugh afforded by Mrs. 
Green's sarcasm. There was a gathering 
of people in the president's office to 
discuss the postponement of May Day. 
Fred Lehman was distinctly in favor of 
holding the thing without any further 
delay. "Why," he said, "the sun is 
shining in Philadelphia." "Well," an- 
swered the dean, "we're absolutely not 
going to take our May Day to Philadel- 
phia." Of course, his face was crimson. 

Another effort — this time with apolo- 
gies to Joseph Moncure March: 

Winnie is a blonde 
And her age stands still, 
And she flashes her smile 
With a random will. 

Mary's a brunette 
With a lot of charm, 
With a pair of lovely eyes 
That could do no harm. 

Helen's hair is red 
And her eyes are blue; 
Makes your heart stand still 
When she looks at you. 

Spin the wheel of fortune 

A dozen times or so. 

The arrow stops at number 5 — 

Away we'll go. 

Spin it once again. 
Ah, there's number 2. 
Call her up, make a date; 
She'll be glad to go with you. 

Lots of time for worrying 
About a home and — well, 
Wait until you've had your fling 
And raised your cain a spell. 

Room 28 holds the record thus far 
of being the most popular room in the 
dormitory, according to the room chart 
melee the other morning. John Zech, 
wishing to sign up the room for Jordan, 
Palatini, and himself, got out of bed at 
4:30 A.M. to be the first in front of the 
treasurer's office on Tuesday. Imagine 
his embarrassment when he found that 
there were two parties already over there 
— had been there all night, in fact. A 
little later, still two more appeared, all 
intent on the same room. The final re- 
sult was that the first party on the scene 
took 28, the second party was talked in- 
to suite 32, Zech took 19, and the others 
weeped. Then room 28 and room 19 
changed places and everybody was hap- 
py — even Mr. Esbenshade. 

Things you never knew 'til now (un- 
less you read the news) : Claude Don- 
moyer, just Donmoyer to you, of tennis 
fame, has a girl in Philadelphia. The 
approach of certain faculty members in 
regards to the purchase of a 1934 Quit- 
tapahilla has met with a rather frigid 
response, although said faculty members 
were quite ready during the past year to 
accept choice seats to Junior productions 
and invitations to Junior social func- 
tions. Let's hope that this is merely 
temporary hesitation. 



Headlines Feature 
Athletic Section 
Of 1934 "Quittie" 


Nylin's Best Seven Stars Chosen 
As Highlight of Year 
Book Sports 


The athletic section of the 1934 Quit- 
ahilla presents some novel ideas of 
arrangement of pictures and news con- 
ent The pictures of players and game 
snapshots are set in a new panel ar- 

The football section presents each 
game written up in newspaper style with 
the pictures of those players who turned 
in perhaps their best performance in 
that particular game. 

The basketball, baseball and tennis 
sections are written in the form of a re- 
view of the season. Each game is re- 
viewed in brief but descriptive style. 

Headlines and subheads appear at the 
beginning of each writeup, lending a 
newsy appearance to the page, and a 
writeup of the starring men of each 
game is included. 

The intramural sports receive their 
appropriate consideration in due form. 
The panel idea is carried out in a some- 
what different style in this section. 

As a feature of the athletic section, 
appears a panel of seven of the best all- 
round athletes produced at Lebanon 
Valley under the regime of "Hooks" 
Mylin. The seven men appearing in 
the panel were chosen by competent 
judges and the information imparted to 
the 1934 Quittie. 

Of course, practically everyone can 
guess the keyman of this sextet of ath- 
letes. But what about the other six? 
Put on your thinking caps. See if you 
can pick the same men as the authori- 
ties on the subject. 

In this column, the '34 Quittie wishes 
to extend its appreciation to Jack Todd, 
Fred Lehman, and Boyd Sponaugle for 
their contributions to the athletic sec- 


(Continued from Page One) 
The first selection was the lively and 
well-liked "United States Field Artillery 
March." This was followed with a selec- 
tion from "Tannhauser" and the ever- 
Popular "American Patrol." After a 
brief pause for station identification by 
u»e announcer, the band continued with 
the difficult "Thoughts of Love" which 
featured its outstanding soloist, Leslie 
Saunders. Mr. Saunders was at his best 
°n this selection and his fine skill and 
rich tone were evident to all who heard 
him. The band then fell back into 
^arch time and played another of 
^ousa's favorites, "The Stars and Stripes 
forever." T he final numbers on the 
Program were the first movement from 
Pallet Egyptien" and the Alma Mater. 

( Continued from Page One) 
members of the group suggested a num- 
ber of other epithets and more or less 
uncomplimentary adjectives that might 
have been used in the paper. The next 
work was an eight line poem by Henry 
Palatini. The effort was criticised as 
lacking in proper metre and for lack- 
ing the proper wording for the thought 
progression attempted. 

The fifth chapter of the joint novel 
was the work of Jane Shellenberger. 
She rather briefly took the pair of 
campus sweethearts through a class, and 
then presented a friend from home as 
a possible rival for the hero in his rather 
classic pursuit of the fair co-ed heroine. 
The novel will be circulated by mail 
this summer to the various members who 
have not as yet written their chapters. 
The group expects that the novel will 
be completed early next fall. 

Adviser's Work Heard 

One of the surprises of the evening 
was an article from the pen of the club 
adviser, Dr. Struble. It was called "The 
Writer's Club," and was a dissertation 
on the aims, purposes, and ultimate 
achievements of well organized and pro- 
gressive writers' clubs in any college or 
university. Dr. Struble stressed the fact 
that American school children are be- 
ing brought up in what may be termed 
an English atmosphere. They are led to 
believe that the only worthwhile history, 
from the writer's standpoint, is English 
history. They are not convinced that 
there is as much opportunity for plot 
and setting in the United States as else- 
where. Another danger, he stated, was 
the using of books for background 
and color, instead of the use of inci- 
dents in one's own life. 

In the period of open discussion fol- 
lowing the readings, an election of offi- 
cers for the next year was held. The 
nominations were made by the senior 
members of the organization. Miss Mar- 
tha Kreider was elected "Head Scop," 
and Miss Marietta Ossi was named 
"Keeper of the Word Horde." Dr. 
Struble will again act as adviser to the 

In appreciation for the helpful and 
pleasant aid Dr. and Mrs. Struble gave 
the "Green Blotter" during the past 
year, the members presented them with 
a gift, which, though it fell far short 
of showing the actual gratitude felt by 
the members, in some wise expressed th 

The remainder of the evening was 
spent in discussion — of the Pulitzer 
prize winners — of other books and styles 
— of plans for the coming year.

Fifty Couples Dance 

The Colonial ballroom has been the 
scene of several previous dances of the 
college and is becoming a place of 
pleasant memories for many of the stu- 
dents. About fifty couples were dancing 
on the small floor, and in spite of the 
slightly crowded condition and the an 
noying heat on the dance floor, every 
one seemed to be enjoying the evening 

The faculty members who acted as 
chaperons Saturday night were Mrs 
Green, Dr. and Mrs. Wagner, Prof, 
and Mrs. Rutledge, and Prof. Stokes. 

The May Day Frolic brought to a 
happy close a day full of disappoint- 
ment because of the postponement or 
May Day for the second time on ac- 
count of unfavorable weather conditions. 

That famous, or perhaps notorious, 
Winchell related this one: 

Mrs. Meffofsky was confessing her 
infidelity to her husband. "Mein Gott," 
yelled her better half, "who vuss de 
snake in de grass — Cohen?" 

"No," replied his wife, with bowed 

"Who den — S c h m a 1 o w i t z?" he 

"No," she sobbed. 

"So, it must hev bin Rappaport, heh?" 
said he, with finality. 

"No!" cried the hysterical woman. 

"Ha-hahh!" Meffofsky retorted, show- 
ing his teeth. "So my frands vassn't 
good enough for you?" 

The Doctor: "Well, that's expecting 
a lot from an anaesthetic."

Life of Year-Book 
Will Be Prolonged 
By Proper Handling 

"The life of a college annual may 
be prolonged indefinitely if proper care 
is taken when first opening it," advised 
Miss Helen E. Myers, Lebanon Valley 
librarian, when consulted this morning 
by a La Vie reporter. Miss Myers, who 
"knows her books," suggested the fol- 
lowing procedure: 

Beginning at the covers, turn a few 
pages alternately from the back and 
front, working toward the middle of the 

Although the 1934 "Quittie" embod- 
ies the latest aproved method of book- 
binding including silk head-bands, and 
is constructed to withstand hard usage, 
it is advisable to observe proper pre- 
cautions when handling it. 

The "Quittie" cover is one of the dis- 
tinctive features of the book. It is not 
a stock cover, but one specially designed 
in accordance with the general character 
of the work.

To buy or not to buy, that is the ques- 

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suf- 

The dandruff and the dangers of pink 

Or to take drugs against insidious head 


And by our dosing end them? To bed; 
to sleep 

No more; and by a Simmons bed to end 
The footitch and the thousand natural 

The flesh is heir to, 'tis an indorsement 
Devoutly to be wished. To bed, to sleep; 
To sleep; perchance to wake; ay, there's 
the rub; 

For in that sleep o' nights what coffee 

When we have roasted out the rancid

For who would bear the corns, domestic 

The dread of halitosis, B. O., fear 
Of harmful irritants in cigarettes, 
When he himself might his cure-all make 
With a mere yeast cake? Who would 

lotions buy 
To grease and gargle all a weary life, 
But that the dread of something worse 

than death, 
Some strange disease that advertisers tell 
Will sure befall, puzzles the will 
And makes us rather buy those things 

they urge 

Than fall to evils that we know not of? 
Thus ballyhoo makes cowards of us all 

Don't wait! Buy now! That should 
be the motto of every student who wish- 
es to purchase a copy of the 1934 "Quit- 
tie." According to word received from 
the publishers of the book, it will be 
here at the end of the week in all its 
glory, and from all indications it will 
be a knockout. 

However, the edition of this publica- 
tion has been ruthlessly curtailed. Only 
a limited number of copies have been 
purchased by the staff this year. Four- 
fifths of these are already sold and the 
others are going swiftly. The staff ex- 
pects a complete sell-out, and no more 
books may be purchased, so sign up now 
and don't be disappointed. 

Dormitory students may purchase 
their books on their breakage fee ac- 
counts by seeing either Mr. Buzzell or 
Mr. Sherk. Day student girls must pay 
cash as their breakage fees are too small 
for a four dollar assessment. However, 
they can still reserve copies. Male day 
students may assign two dollars of their 
breakage fee for a "Quittie." Don't for- 
get to buy now and be assured of your 
year book.

German Club 

The German Club held its annual 
election of officers and chose Emma 
Reinbold as President, Emma Fas-

Secretary - Treasurer, and Margaret 
Kohler was named pianist. These 
German students can certainly b,e

The German Club looks forward 
with breathless interest to the series 
of instructive, entertaining, and

With the above list of able offi-

Precious Gold, his father, and two 
younger brothers wearily slipped along 
the narrow, raised path between the 
dark, wet rice fields, towards the mud- 
brick hut silhouetted against the eve- 
ning sky. All day they had sat in the 
blazing sun treading the water wheel 
which pumped the pond water up over 
the thirsty fields. The calves of their 
hard brown legs ached. 

With relief they reached the hut and 
entered the dark, earthen-floored room. 
LoMa hurried to bring a tin basin of 
hot water from the plaster stove in the 
center, that they might wring out hot 
towels and wipe off their tired, sweaty 

As they sat down at the square, un- 
painted table to reach for the bowls of 
hard rice which LoMa had set there, 
the woman remarked, "I hear that the 
foreign 'Si Mu' (Mistress) at the hos- 
pital wants to invite a table boy. She 
pays six dollars a month." 

The father pushed several big lumps 
of rice into his mouth with his chop- 
sticks without speaking. Then he put 
down the bowl and said, slowly, "Why 
shouldn't Precious Gold go and see. He 
is almost a man. He is not lazy and can 
learn. The coming winter will be hard. 
There is no rain and the pond water 
will soon be gone." 

"But the foreign devils are not to be 
trusted," his wife protested. "We have 
heard how they take babies' hearts to 
make medicine of." 

"Those may be 'wild words'," the man 
declared. "Think of the money." 

So it was that next morning as soon 
as the sun slipped its round, red edge 
before the house, Precious Gold put on 
new cloth shoes over his broad calloused 
feet and a clean blue jacket and trou- 
sers. Then he started to the city. 

It was several hours later that he stood 
with thumping heart before a wide door 
set in a high, brick wall. 

"And what do you want?" the lean 
gate keeper demanded, opening the 
heavy doors. 

"Please, may I see the foreign Mis- 
tress?" Precious Gold inquired anxi- 

"Go up to the house on the hill and 
knock at the back door," the gate keep- 
er advised him, pursing his lips towards 
a large building above. 

Precious Gold followed the brick 
walk up the hill and circled the house 
until he came to the back. There he 
stood, hesitating, coughing gently in 
the hope of attracting attention. Final' 
ly he knocked. 

The Chinese man who admitted him 
was overbearing in his manner, but 
slipped away to call the "si mu." 

Precious Gold stood stolidly but ob- 
servantly. No details of the room, from 
the clean painted boards of the floor to 
the shining black iron stove, escaped 

Suddenly the "Si Mu" entered. He 
was surprised to see how little she was. 
Her hair was almost brown and not as 
rough as he had heard the foreign wom- 
an's hair was. She did not look much 
different from nice Chinese women. 

Then she spoke. "Have you ever 
worked for a foreigner?" Her voice was 
not loud and harsh as he had feared. 
And he understood her. 

"No, Si Mu," he stammered. "But I 
am willing to spend my strength, and I 
can learn." 

She looked at him closely and then 
said, "You may try. The affairs are 
many, but slowly you will learn. We 
have just finished breakfast. Wipe the 
dishes for the cook and I will see you 

The overbearing one now began put- 
ting piles of white dishes into a pan of 
soapy water and lifting them out again. 
He threw Precious Gold a cloth and

told him to wipe them dry. Clumsily, 
Precious Gold obeyed. 

When he came to the shiny knives, he 
was especially puzzled. There was no 
edge on them at all. Then an idea 
struck him. He would prove to the over- 
bearing one and to the little "Si Mu" 
that he was willing and not stupid. The 
cook had his back turned while clean- 
ing the vegetables. Quickly he gathered 
up the silver and went out. He found 
a rough stone back by the well and 
squatted beside it. The minutes flew by 
and the sun scorched down, but eagerly 
he rubbed and scoured. Finally he be- 
gan to have misgivings. There were 
many scratches on the shiny surfaces; 
black was showing through, but no keen 
edges appeared. Something was wrong. 
Gathering the knives up, he shu ffled 
slowly back. 

The cook was still in the kitchen. He 
took one look at the ruined silver and 
burst out, "You piece of wood — you—," 

A woman's voice interrupted. "What's 
the matter?" It was the si mu. 

She took one long look at the 
scratched blades. Her face seemed paler 
than it had been. Precious Gold thrust 
his arms in his sleeves, swallowed to wet 
his throat so he could speak and say 
quickly that his father had sent for him, 
before she could utter the unbearable 
words of dismissal. 

But she was speaking, "You wanted 
to please me, didn't you? And you 
spent much strength. Our knives are 
not like your knives, but you did not 
know. You were trying; that is impor- 
tant. After this, you must first ask and 
then you can learn the foreign way. 
Understanding will come." 

Precious Gold could only mutter, "It 
is too bad I did not know." But in his 
heart was born an undying loyalty to 
the foreigner.

Have you been on the lookout lately? 
Then you probably noticed:

a Saturday morning, looking for rain.

That look of suspense on Marion 
Kruger's face. 

That the vanilla buns in the Penn- 
way are usually all gone by nine-thirty 
in the morning. 

The lawn mowers have been busy in 
town. Note Lecthaler's hair. 

The many strange sounds on the east 
side of North Hall — serenading is quite 
popular in the spring. 

George Hiltner is as fond as ever of 
that "hang out" on the church corner. 

Little "Tony Wallace" is right up to 
par in his May Day dance. He could 
give us a few pointers. 

Signs of spring — Regina Oyler's "gold 
in de ead" — Louise Shearer taking a 
sun bath on the balcony — overcuts — 
chiffon dresses and white flannels — 
swimming at the water works — rhubarb 
in the dining hall — mosquitoes by the 
"Quittie" — rain, and more rain! 

Incidentally, spring has a bad effect 
on yours truly. If I can see through the 
open window of a classroom, flowering 
trees, blue skies, green grass, and couples 
promenading, my mind promenades 
too. I've been noticing lately how that 
"Quittie" bulletin board is attracting at- 
tention. Where is the original Lydia 
Pinkham's sign that was on it? 

And another thing — I've always want- 
ed to make a list of the places around 
L. V. C. where I hear the oddest noises. 
Here it is: — the dining hall when we 
have soup — chapel when we sing "Little 
Tommy Tinker" — the dormintory when 
one o'clock comes around (it's the snor- 
ing hour) — Annville, on Sunday morn- 
ing at eight o'clock when all the church 
bells ring — the large dining hall when 
Mrs. Green rings the bell — "Green 
Blotter Club," when "Babe" Earley imi- 
tates Garbo — the printer's shop when 
one opens the door — Main street, when 
the Greyhound goes by — the railroad 
station when the "Queen of the Valley" 
comes in. 

Incidentally, speaking of noises, that 
screen door down at the Pennway af- 
fords a lot of amusement for some peo- 
ple. In psychology we hear that an in-

the huskier members of the band lum 
bered into the room bearing a large, 
unshapely box which they placed at the

very much to him as though there could 
be nothing inside but a chicken or a 

Despite his initial and somewhat dis- 
appointing impressions, the band lead- 
er carefully and expectantly began what 
seemed to be a futile search to find 
something inside the box. However, his 
labors were not to come to nought for 
there was something inside and this he 
found not to be a chicken or a rabbit, 
but a black leather brief-case. A smile 
came over his face as he carefully ex- 
amined this token of appreciation for 
his untiring efforts, and he sighed a deep 
sigh of relief. For a while he remained 
speechless, but soon he stammered: 

"Why did you do this? You should- 
n't have done it." 

"Well," came the answer, "whait'4 
done is done." 

He kept the gift. 

After practice the bandmen retired 
to the band room where they were served

Dr. Struble, desirous of ascertaining

However, this class is extremely versa,

the next in favor is Zane Grey, with 3 60 

There were 100 papers returned, and 
it is a matter of great curiosity to the 
English department that Meredith re- 
ceived 93 votes, Rostand's "Cyrano de

of which were compulsory freshman 

Thames Williamson would be over-

these immature minds can only mean— . 
well, let that go.

At any rate, it must be kept in mind 
that this list by no means indicates their 
present literary taste, which may ac- 
count for Zane Grey's popularity. Even 
in their youth, these prodigious students 
had literary leanings, for Horatio Alger 
was chosen as the most widely read 
writer. However, to counteract this, so 
to speak, Dickens received 232 votes, an 
extraordinary amount, even taking into 
consideration that at least one book was 
compulsory reading in those old, long- 
forgotten days in high school.
